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.

Modern commercial beekeeping has changed from primarily honey production to crop pollination. With this change has come extraordinary stress—colonies are moved multiple times a year, increasing their exposure to diseases, parasites, and hive pests. Antibiotics and acaricides are being applied more frequently, resulting in resistance and comb contamination. The future use of bee colonies as mobile pollinator populations requires modern management methods with fresh perspectives on nutrition, breeding practices, and the role of microbes in sustaining colony health. Honey Bee Colony Health: Challenges and Sustainable Solutions summarizes the current status of honey bees and possible reasons for their decline. This beautifully illustrated volume provides a foundation for management methods that maintain colony health. Integrating discussions of Colony Collapse Disorder, the chapters range from information on the new microsporidian Nosema ceranae pathogens, the current status of the parasitic bee mites, updates on bee viruses, and the effects of these problems on our important bee pollinators. This indispensable text also presents methods for diagnosing diseases and updated information on the current status of bee breeding. Honey bee colonies are in greater demand and are renting for higher fees than ever before. Finding ways to prevent outbreaks of disease and to control parasites is essential for reducing colony losses. The accumulation of knowledge from a range of bee scientists, Honey Bee Colony Health: Challenges and Sustainable Solutions aims to inspire future generations of researchers, beekeepers, and students to continue to study bees and keep them healthy and pollinating.

This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. Starting in late 2006, commercial migratory beekeepers along the East Coast of the U.S. began reporting sharp declines in their honey bee colonies. Scientists named this phenomenon Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). Overall, the number of managed honey bee colonies dropped an estimated 35.8% in the winter of 2007/2008. The reasons for colony losses are not yet known. Contents of this report: (1) Importance of Honey Bee Pollination; (2) Extent and Symptoms of CCD: Past Honey Bee Population Losses; How CCD Differs from Past Bee Colony Losses; Symptoms of CCD; Possible Causes of CCD; Other Related Events; (3) Issues for Congress; 2008 Farm Bill: Conservation; Research; Insurance and Disaster Provisions. Charts and tables.
