The Dance Language and Orientation of Bees is his masterwork—the culmination of more than fifty years of research. Now available for the first time in paperback, it describes in non-technical language what he discovered in a lifetime of study about honeybees—their methods of orientation, their sensory faculties, and their remarkable ability to communicate with one another. Thomas Seeleys new foreword traces the revolutionary effects of von Frischs work, not just for the study of bees, but for all subsequent research in animal behavior. This new paperback edition also includes an Appreciation of von Frisch by the distinguished biologist Martin Lindauer, who was Frischs protégé and later his colleague and friend.
