In March 2000, more than 200 scientists and beekeepers met in Chiang Mai in North Thailand where the 7th International Conference on Tropical Bees and 5th AAA Conference were held in conjunction. Over 70 of the papers presented are now published in these Proceedings and together they make a substantial and useful text. Topics include hive products, the biodiversity of honeybees, biology, management, bee pests and diseases, crop production, conservation, genetic advances and development. The focus of the papers is academic research of honeybee biology, although there are some papers relating to practical beekeeping and development.
