The Dance Language and Orientation of Bees

£50.00

Product description

Until his death in 1982, Karl von Frisch was the world's most renowned authority on bees. "The Dance Language and Orientation of Bees" is his masterwork - the culmination of more than fifty years of research. Now available for the first time in paperback, it describes in non-technical language what he discovered in a lifetime of study about honeybees - their methods of orientation, their sensory faculties, and their remarkable ability to communicate with one another. Thomas Seeley's new foreword traces the revolutionary effects of von Frisch's work, not just for the study of bees, but for all subsequent research in animal behaviour. This new paperback edition also includes a "Personal Appreciation" of von Frisch by the distinguished biologist Martin Lindauer, who was von Frisch's protege and later his colleague and friend.

Translated by Leigh E. Chadwick.

CONDITION: Minor scuffs and edge wear to outside otherwise clean and bright internally with no inscriptions or notations.
