Learn how bees live, make honey, pollinate plants, eat, reproduce, defend themselves, and more.Sample passage:Very wonderful indeed is the study of flowers in their relation to bees and other insects, bringing as it does the realization that not only the nectar but the beautifully shaped and tinted petals have been developed just to attract the pollen-carriers.

Certain flowers, as the snapdragon, cannot be fertilized by flies, and are therefore so made that a fly cannot enter them and steal their honey without doing them any service. The curiously shaped petals are closed until the heavy bumblebee alights on the ledge or “lip,” when its weight opens up the blossom and lets it slip in.About the author:Vernon Lyman Kellogg (1867-1937) was an entomologist and evolutionary biologist.

Other works include “American Insects,” “Evolution and Animal Life,” and “Darwinism Today.”
