Since it was first published in 1962, this book has been the standard textbook for the dissection of honeybees. It underwent a gestation period of over ten years but emerged the better for it and has now run to four reprints and a revised edition. It is a clear and practical guide to both the anatomy and dissection of the honey bee making the subject totally understandable even to those who have not had any formal training in such work. It is divided into three sections: the first part gives a detailed and logical description of the honeybee’s anatomy, the second is a step-by-step guide to dissection of all castes, while the third has 20 illustrated plates making the directions easy to follow. These plates have also been enlarged and reproduced as A4 laminated illustrations. See ‘Dissections Plates’ under Sundries.
