About the Author


"The book has chapters covering a wide range of subjects from pests, pesticides, queen-rearing challenges, varroa resistance, epidemiology to propolis, American foul brood (AFB), sting allergy therapy and more. ... I found this book to be very interesting and it goes some way to elucidating our understanding of the individual immunity and the social immunity of bees. ... I hope that the book's format will be taken up by bee scientists in the future." (John Hill, President British Bee Veterinary Association, BBKA News, December, 2018)

"Many well-known bee scientists have contributed chapters to this new book with the aim of clearly explaining the fundamentals of bee science. ... This book is densely packed and will be very useful for the many beekeepers who want to be scientifically well-informed." (Bees for Development Journal, ISS. 127, June, 2018)
