Short Synopsis
A remarkable account of scientific discovery, Honeybee Democracy brings together, for the first time, decades of Thomas Seeley's pioneering research to tell the amazing story of house hunting and democratic debate among the honeybees.

Full Synopsis
Honeybees make decisions collectively—and democratically. Every year, faced with the life-or-death problem of choosing and traveling to a new home, honeybees stake everything on a process that includes collective fact-finding, vigorous debate, and consensus building. In fact, as world-renowned animal behaviorist Thomas Seeley reveals, these incredible insects have much to teach us when it comes to collective wisdom and effective decision making. A remarkable account of scientific discovery, Honeybee Democracy brings together, for the first time, decades of Seeley's pioneering research to tell the amazing story of house hunting and democratic debate among the honeybees.

"Dr. Seeley is an engaging guide. His enthusiasm and admiration for honeybees is infectious. His accumulated research seems truly masterly, doing for bees what E.O. Wilson did for ants." ---Katherine Bouton, New York Times

"Honeybee Democracy is a brilliant display of science at work, with each experiment explained and illustrated." ---New Scientist

"His argument is seductive. . . . [R]eading Honeybee Democracy is a delightful way to spend an evening." ---National Post
