Bees: a Honeyed History
How do bees communicate? How long have they been around? What does a beekeeper actually do? Who survived being stung by 2,443 bees?
This encyclopedic book answers all those questions and many more with a light, humorous touch. Piotr Socha tracks the history of bees from the age of the dinosaurs to their current plight, examining along the way the role bees have played in history and in the rest of the natural world.
