Booknews
Reviews the scientific and apicultural literature on the "African" honey bee, introduced into Brazil in 1956, and now spread through much of the American tropics. Presents much previously inaccessible information from Brazil, Peru, Venezuela, and Costa Rica on beekeeping, with the strain and hybrids, identification, ecology and population dynamics, breeding techniques, and the genetics of the defensive behavior that got them called killer bees by the popular press.
