Bees: their vision, chemical senses, and language by Karl von Frisch( Book )

79 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 2,938 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over half a century of brilliant scientific detective work, the Nobel Prize-winning biologist Karl von Frisch learned how the world, looks, smells, and tastes to a bee. More significantly, he discovered their dance language and their ability to use the sun as a compass. Intended to serve as an accessible introduction to one of the most fascinating areas of biology, Bees (first published in 1950 and revised in 1971), reported the startling results of his ingenious and revolutionary experiments with honeybees.In his revisions, von Frisch updated his discussion about the phylogenetic origin of the language of bees and also demonstrated that their color sense is greater than had been thought previously. He also took into consideration the electrophysiological experiments and electromicroscopic observations that have supplied more information on how the bee analyzes polarized light to orient itself and how the olfactory organs on the bee's antennae function.Now back in print after more than two decades, this classic and still-accurate account of the behavior patterns and sensory capacities of the honeybee remains a book “written with a simplicity, directness, and charm which all who know him will recognize as characteristic of its author. Any intelligent reader, without scientific training, can enjoy it.”—Yale Review
The dance language and orientation of bees by Karl von Frisch( Book )

44 editions published between 1965 and 2013 in English and German and held by 1,686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until his death in 1982, Karl von Frisch was the world's most renowned authority on bees. The Dance Language and Orientation of Bees is his masterwork--the culmination of more than fifty years of research. Now available for the first time in paperback, it describes in non-technical language what he discovered in a lifetime of study about honeybees--their methods of orientation, their sensory faculties, and their remarkable ability to communicate with one another. Thomas Seeley's new foreword traces the revolutionary effects of von Frisch's work, not just for the study of bees, but for all subsequent research in animal behavior. This new paperback edition also includes an "Appreciation" of von Frisch by the distinguished biologist Martin Lindauer, who was Frisch's protégé and later his colleague and friend

Aus dem Leben der Bienen by Karl von Frisch( Book )

Karl von Frischs Bienenforschungen sind Legende: Kaum ein Schüler, der im Biologieunterricht nichts von der Orientierung und den Schwänzeltänzen der Bienen gehört hätte. Fast 70 Jahre nach Erscheinen der ersten Auflage von Aus dem Leben der Bienen hat Martin Lindauer, einst enger Mitarbeiter v. Frischs und selbst ein bekannter Bienenforscher, diesen Klassiker der Bienenliteratur aktualisiert und mit neuen, oft farbigen Photos versehen. Dabei ist es ihm gelungen, den unvergleichlichen Stil v. Frischs zu bewahren. Ein Buch für alle, die sich inmitten aller Technik noch einen offenen Sinn für die Natur bewahrt haben

Eine Darstellung des eigenen Lebensweges stand nicht auf meinem Arbeitsprogramm. Der Anstoß kam von außen. Die Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften, mit der ich seit 1938 als Mitglied und seit 1954 als Ehrenmitglied verbunden bin, verlangt von allen, die ihr angehören, für ihre Akten die Abfassung einer Autobiographie, über deren Umfang sie keine Vorschrift macht. Als ich jetzt nach wieder holter Mahnung endlich daran ging, der Verpflichtung nachzukommen, geriet mir das Schriftstück in die Breite, und so mag es schließlich in der Bücherei der Akademie, statt in ihrem Aktenschrank unterschlüpfen. Indem ich dieses Buch der ehrwürdigen Österreichischen Akademie der Wissenschaften zueigne, möchte ich auch einen späten Dank dafür zum Ausdruck bringen, daß ich von ihr im Jahre 1921 mit der Verleihung des Liebenpreises meine erste wissenschaftliche Auszeichnung erhielt. Herrn Dr. FERDINAND SPRINGER danke ich für seine verleger ehe Bereitwilligkeit und für das schöne Gewand, das er diesem bescheidenen Versuch zugedacht hat. Brunnwinkl, am 4. Oktober 1956 KARL V.
