n African Entomology - The Dark Side of the Hive: The Evolution of the Imperfect Honey Bee, Robin F.A.Moritz & Robin Crewe - book review

Volume 27 Number 1
  • ISSN : 1021-3589


The book is a result of a long on-going collaboration between the two authors. For decades they investigated various aspects of honey bees, in particular the exceptional features of the two honey bee subspecies found in South Africa, namely Apis mellifera capensis and A. m. scutellata. Nevertheless, the book not only focuses on these two iconic African subspecies, but rather elegantly manages to cover the whole species; thereby embracing the global available knowledge of honey bees.
