Understanding Bee Anatomy: a full colour guide


Stell. I (2012) The Catford Press. pp. 208 paperback. ISBN: 978 0957422803

This book aims to do two things: Firstly to explain the structure of this fascinating insect and secondly, through stunning images, to reveal the insectís intricate detail.
Dr Stell has applied his knowledge of the human body in describing the honeybee, system by system.
The book starts with a chapter on the developmental stages, showing the internal changes taking place from the egg to the larva, and then the pupa.
It includes chapters on all body parts, wings and flight structures, the circulatory, respiratory and digestive systems and finishes with chapters on the queen and the drone.
The anatomy is explained in clear colour diagrams and illustrated with over six hundred high-quality photographs. These include electron micrographs, close-up images, high-power stained sections (histology) and other techniques.
This concise but readable book is perfect for the BBKA exams in bee biology. It is also a valuable resource for any beekeeper wanting to understand his insects better, or any student or scientist working in this area.
