Beekeeping is a sixteen-billion-dollar-a-year company. however the helpful honey bee now faces critical threats from ailments, mites, insecticides, and overwork, let alone the mysterious Colony cave in illness, which reasons doubtless fit bees to desert their hives en masse, by no means to come. within the Quest for the best Hive, entomologist Gene Kritsky bargains a concise, fantastically illustrated historical past of beekeeping, tracing the evolution of hive layout from historic Egypt to the current.
Bugs and flora and fauna: Arthropods and their Relationships with Wild Vertebrate Animals presents a finished assessment of the interrelationships of bugs and flora and fauna. It serves as an advent to bugs and different arthropods for flora and fauna administration and different vertebrate biology scholars, and emphasizes the significance of bugs to wild vertebrate animals.
Social insects--ants, bees, termites, and wasps--can be considered as robust problem-solving platforms with refined collective intelligence. Composed of straightforward interacting brokers, this intelligence lies within the networks of interactions between participants and among participants and the surroundings. a desirable topic, social bugs also are a strong metaphor for man made intelligence, and the issues they solve--finding nutrients, dividing hard work between nestmates, construction nests, responding to exterior challenges--have very important opposite numbers in engineering and computing device technological know-how.
