There are plenty of books on the biology of the honeybee for all, the scientist, the beekeeper, and the layman. This one sticks out, since it is abook not on "the honeybee", but on the honeybee colony - probably the most significant biological structure in nature.
Accordingly, this book is not intended as a reference book on honeybee biology, but is meant as a new conceptual framework of an "old" biological understanding of the honeybee colony on the basis of modern biological analysis and recent theories. The honeybee is presented as it lives and thrives in its social unit - the colonial superorganism.
