The conundrum of the honey bees: one impediment to the publication of Darwin's theory

, : The conundrum of the honey bees: one impediment to the publication of Darwin's theory. Journal of the History of Biology 23(2): 271-290

The 'impediment' experienced by Darwin in formulating his theory of evolution centred on the evolution of the 'wonderful instincts' of the social insects, especially the comb-building ability of honey bees. The author addresses 3 questions.
