Urban beekeeping is on the rise as swarms of people do their part to help nurture local food systems, make gardens more productive, connect with nature, and rescue honey bee populations from colony collapse disorder.

The food products of bees have long been attributed with many health benefits. They can lead to greater stamina, increased resistance to disease, and, counterintuitively, often help reduce pollen allergies. Scientific studies have revealed that bee propolis, royal jelly, honey, and bee pollen are rich sources of antioxidant "phytochlemicals"-vitamin-like substances similar to those found in common vegatables. In this User's Guide, Dr. Broadhurst explains the scientific rationale behind bee foods and describes how they can improve your health.

Die Hummel ist nicht nur ein pelziges Geschöpf, an dessen Anblick wir uns erfreuen, sie ist auch ein Wunder der Natur, das die Gesetze der Schwerkraft überlistet, und ein Nutztier, das jährlich Abermillionen Tomaten und Johannisbeeren bestäubt. Doch die Hummel ist vom Aussterben bedroht. Ihr Verschwinden hätte gravierende Folgen für unsere Gesellschaft. Dave Goulson, Englands führender Hummelforscher, öffnet uns die Augen für ungeahnte Zusammenhänge zwischen Hummeln und Menschen. Sein Buch ist eine Liebeserklärung an die wahre Königin der Lüfte, eine hinreißend humorvolle Schilderung eines großen Abenteuers, der Rettung der Erdbauhummel – und ein furioses Plädoyer für die Bewahrung der Natur.

To accomplish this requires making intelligent decisions in the beeyard, sound planning, tuning into nature, and balancing biology and business savvy.

Neue Einblicke in die faszinierende Welt der Honigbienen Ob als Lieferanten von Honig und Wachs, als Meister der sozialen Organisation in einem hoch geordneten Staatswesen oder als Architekten beeindruckend regelmäßiger Wabenkonstruktionen – Honigbienen faszinieren den Menschen seit jeher. Und dank ihrer enormen Bestäubungsleistung bei Kulturpflanzen sind sie für uns schlicht unverzichtbar. Wissenschaftler, die den Geheimnissen dieser Insekten auf der Spur sind, entschlüsseln Schritt für Schritt das „Phänomen Honigbiene“ – und stoßen dabei immer wieder auf neue Überraschungen. Das vorliegende Buch lässt den Leser teilhaben am aktuellen Stand des Wissens und an den oft bahnbrechenden Erkenntnissen, die in den vergangenen Jahren – nicht zuletzt von der Arbeitsgruppe um Jürgen Tautz in Würzburg – gewonnen worden sind. Zugleich vermitteln die zahlreichen bislang weitgehend unveröffentlichten Aufnahmen der Fotografin Helga R. Heilmann dem Betrachter ein neues visuelles Bild dieser evolutionär so erfolgreichen Organismen. "Der Bienenstaat gleicht einem Zauberbrunnen; je mehr man daraus schöpft, desto reicher fließt er", hat Karl von Frisch, der Altmeister der Honigbienenforschung, einmal treffend gesagt. Lassen Sie sich zu diesem Zauberbrunnen entführen! _____ Wer dieses Buch liest, wird sich der Faszination des „Phänomens Honigbiene“ kaum entziehen können. Alte Ansätze, frische Blickwinkel und neue Untersuchungsmethoden lassen das Bild eines Superorganismus entstehen, der zweifellos zu den erstaunlichsten Geschöpfen der Erde zählt. Die hochorganisierte Staatenbildung der Bienen und ihre überragende Bedeutung für die Artenvielfalt vieler Lebensräume wie auch für die Erträge der Landwirtschaft rücken sie in den Blickpunkt des Interesses von Experten und Nichtfachleuten gleichermaßen. Was sind die Erfolgsgeheimnisse dieses Superorganismus? Was macht seine einsame Sonderstellung aus? Im letzten Jahrzehnt sind – insbesondere in der Arbeitsgruppe um Professor Jürgen Tautz in Würzburg – zahlreiche Daten und Erkenntnisse zusammengetragen worden, die ein in vielen Aspekten gänzlich neues Bild der Honigbiene Apis mellifera liefern. Der vorliegende Text-Bild-Band stellt erstmals diese „neue Biene“ in verständlicher und unterhaltsamer Weise einem breiten Publikum vor. Die Texte wie auch die beeindruckenden Fotografien von Helga R. Heilmann führen dem Leser und Betrachter die Ästhetik, Komplexität und atemberaubenden Errungenschaften des „Phänomens Honigbiene“ anschaulich vor Augen. So finden in diesem ebenso ansprechenden und informativen Buch auch die berühmten Werke von Karl von Frisch ein kongeniales Update.
