Form and Function in the Honey Bee

Form and Function in the Honey Bee - Lesley Goodman

Form and Function in the Honey Bee


When Dr Lesley Goodman finally lost her fight against lung cancer in 1998, she left behind her vision for an accessible, authoritative reference work for bee scientists, undergraduates and beekeepers. Form and Function in the Honey Bee is the fruition of her work -

a posthumous tribute to her life and interests.


Containing over 340 diagrams, micrographs and colour illustrations, Form and Function works equally well as an expert guide to the physiology and anatomy of the honey bee, and as an introduction to this fascinating field for students and others.


The chapters take the reader through the major structures and activities of the honey bee - the antennae, compound eyes, dorsal ocelli, the bee's response to gravity, feeding, respiration, flight, glands and colony defence are all examined in detail to give the reader a comprehensive understanding of how and why the honey bee behaves as it does.


The book has been completed posthumously by Prof. Richard J Cooter, Chair of the

L J Goodman Insect Physiology Trust, and Dr Pamela Munn, Deputy Director of the International Bee Research Association.
