"Honingbijen" presents current knowledge and poineering insights into the biology of honey bees. The numerous colour photos give a fascinating picture of this evolutionary successful group of insects. They have always fascinated humans; as suppliers of honey, masters of organising complex social colonies, and architects of imposing honeycomb structures. Thanks to their tremendous performance they have become essential to humanity, which makes their recent die-off all the more alarming. As scientists learn more about honey bees they are surprised time and again. Honingbijen is a fascinating reference work that will interest bee-lovers, farmers, apiarists, and entomologists.
