Upcoming Events with Thomas D. Seeley

Biologist and beekeeper Thomas D. Seeley will be visiting Buffalo Street Books on October 17 to read and sign copies of his new book, Honeybee Democracy. If you miss this event, there will be another chance on October 20, when Seeley will discuss and autograph copies of his book at the Cornell Book Store, on Cornell University’s campus.

In a recent review of Honeybee Democracy, New Science wrote: “In Honeybee Democracy, Seeley carefully narrates his many seasons of experiments using plywood next boxes that could be moved and modified at will. He discovered what bees like in a home, how scouts measure the dark interiors of these boxes and most of all, how the swarm ‘votes’ to decide which nest to occupy. . . . Honeybee Democracy is a brilliant display of science at work, with each experiment explained and illustrated.”

Hope to see you at one of the upcoming events!
