This influential guide by "the father of modern beekeeping," originally published in 1853, constitutes the first descriptive treatise of modern bee management. Its innovations allowed people to engage in actual beekeeping, rather than simply handling bee domiciles and extracting the honey. The techniques it explains and illustrates are still employed 150 years later--including the author's patented invention, a movable frame hive. In a reader-friendly, enthusiastic style, Langstroth addresses every aspect of beekeeping: bee physiology; diseases and enemies of bees; the life-cycles of the queen, drone, and worker; bee-hives; the handling of bees; and many other topics. Unabridged republication of the classic 1878 (fourth) edition.--Publisher description.

»Ein wunderbares Buch über den besten Freund des Menschen unter den Insekten...« Edward O. Wilson Die Bienenkönigin ist keine absolute Herrscherin. Im Gegenteil: Bienen entscheiden alle gemeinsam als Schwarm, sie erforschen kollektiv einen Sachverhalt und debattieren lebhaft, um letztlich einen Konsens zu finden. Der bekannte Verhaltensforscher Thomas D. Seeley untersucht seit Jahrzehnten in akribischer Kleinarbeit das Leben der Bienen. In seinem spannend geschriebenen Buch zeigt er anschaulich, was wir von diesen wunderbaren Insekten lernen können und dass die Entscheidung mehrerer klüger als die Einzelner sein kann. Ein reich bebildertes, ebenso faszinierendes wie anregendes Buch. »Seeleys Enthusiasmus und Bewunderung für Bienen sind ansteckend, seine Forschungen meisterhaft.« New York Times »Brillant.« Nature »Fesselnd und bezaubernd.« Science »Das hinreißendste Wissenschaftsbuch des Jahres.« Financial Times

Modern Crescenta Valley practically defines the notion of quiet suburbia with its lovely homes and tree-lined streets. Yet the communities that lie north of Los Angeles between the Verdugo and San Gabriel Mountains once formed a vast, isolated, treeless, windstorm-swept dell. The settlers who stayed in this valley found day-to-day subsistence challenging. They farmed, hunted, tried bee ranching, gathered greasewood, cultivated vineyards and dodged rattlesnakes. As settlement in the area continued to develop, such refinements as literature and photography flourished. Join author Jo Anne Sadler as she brings the Valley's frontier days to life, recounting such quirks as a visit from a "rainmaker" and the reasons behind the construction of the gaudy local landmark the Gould Castle.

Wenn wir Bienen und Hummeln retten wollen, müssen wir uns auf die Suche nach ihren seltensten Arten begeben. Um zu verstehen, warum sie verschwinden, aber auch, um diese faszinierenden Geschöpfe in Erinnerung zu behalten. Der Biologe Dave Goulson hat sich an ihre pollenbestäubten Fersen geheftet. Egal, ob er den Kampf der Goldenen Patagonischen Hummel gegen invasive Arten beschreibt oder auf den Äußeren Hebriden die letzten Deichhummeln Großbritanniens aufspürt: Immer ist seine Leidenschaft für die Wildbestäuber ansteckend. Und seine Tipps, wie wir in unserer unmittelbaren Umwelt Bienen vor dem Sterben bewahren, machen unbändige Lust darauf, den heimischen Balkon mit Beinwell zu bepflanzen.

Ein rostiger alter Bus im Garten des Großvaters und seine Bienen werden für Meredith ihr einziger Halt. Denn sie ist erst fünf, als sie von ihren Eltern nach deren Trennung vollkommen sich selbst überlassen wird. Der Großvater nimmt sie mit in die faszinierende Welt der Bienen – und rettet ihr so das Leben. Die Bienen werden Meredith zur Ersatzfamilie: Wenn sie sich verlassen fühlt, zeigen sie ihr, wie man zusammenhält und füreinander sorgt. Wenn sie über ihre depressive Mutter verzweifelt, bewundert sie die Bienen dafür, ihre Königin einfach austauschen zu können. Die Bienen lehren Meredith, anderen zu vertrauen, mutig zu sein und ihren eigenen Weg zu gehen. »Der Honigbus« ist eine starke Geschichte über das Leben und die Weisheiten der Natur.
