Honey bees

Honey bees

Social insects Vol III: 323-360

The first few pages of this review deal with the origins of the genus Apis, and the evolution of sociality. The main section covers the various races of Apis mellifera, and their geographical distribution. There are also short sections on the A. mellifera colony, castes, development and caste differentiation, nutritional requirements, and foraging. D. G.
