The history of beekeeping in Asia, basic biology of Asian bees, honey, wax and other bee products, and crop pollination. Also covered are the diseases and pests of bees which occur in the region, and there is, importantly, a chapter on beekeeping and development in Asia. The book is attractively illustrated, and good value.
