      Overview

      Discover the secrets behind the altruism of worker bees and how they build such perfectly shaped cells; learn about their many enemies and what can be done to protect the species.

      Bees have been in the public eye for quite a few years now, not only because of their vital contribution to natural ecosystems and agricultural production but first and foremost because of the serious problems afflicting them and decimating their populations.

      The book provides insights into what is happening as it takes us on a journey through the different levels of bees’ biological organisation: individual bees, colonies and their ecosystem.
