Professor Sasaki's account of the biology of the 'northernmost Apis cerana' includes 88 excellent colour photographs. The Japanese honeybee Apis cerana japonica is first mentioned in history in 627 AD. There was prosperous beekeeping in Japan before the introduction of Apis mellifera in 1877. Today Apis cerana japonica is rediscovering a niche in the urban environment by using man-made structures for nesting sites.
