This book takes an incomparable look at this astounding diversity, blending an engaging narrative with practical, hands-on discussions of such topics as beekeeping and bee health. It explores our relationship with the bee over evolutionary time, delving into how it came to be, where it stands today, and what the future holds for humanity and bees alike.

The book also contains a wealth of information for would-be beekeepers on the benefits of backyard hives and practical advice on how to get started. There is mounting evidence that bees (honey, bumble, and others) are bioindicators and that their population decline indicates larger ecological, environmental, and agricultural concerns. Getting a 360˚ picture of the past, present, and future of bees in the world is an important first step to tackling these larger issues and, in this respect,
THE BEE is an invaluable resource.

If you are curious about beekeeping, THE BEE provides a quick overview of the basics whether your goals are to generate honey for consumption or simply to provide homes for new populations of bees. Wilson-Rich is the founder of The Best Bees Company and there are few people who could provide better advice or a more comprehensive understanding of this hobby.

THE BEE: A Natural History is the most accessible source of information about all bee species, written for non-scientists by some of the world’s leading bee experts and researchers. This book is for everybody.
