Honey, I'm homemade sweet treats from the beehive across the centuries and around the world ( )
5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,097 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Honey, I'm Homemade: Sweet Treats from the Beehive across the Centuries and around the World showcases a wealth of recipes for cookies, breads, pies, puddings, and cakes that feature honey as an essential ingredient. Noted entomologist May Berenbaum also details the fascinating history of honey harvesting and consumption around the world, explains the honey bee's extraordinary capacity to process nectar into concentrated sweetness, and marvels at honey's diverse flavors and health benefits.;; More than a cookbook, Honey, I'm Homemade is a tribute to the remarkable work of Apis mellifera, the humble honey bee whose pollination services allow three-quarters of all flowering plant species to reproduce and flourish. Sales of the book will benefit the University of Illinois Pollinatarium--the first freestanding science outreach center in the nation devoted to flowering plants and their pollinators.;; Because so much depends on honey bees, and because people have benefited from their labors for millennia, Honey, I'm Homemade is the perfect way to share and celebrate honey's sweetness and delight

Ninety-nine more maggots, mites, and munchers by M Berenbaum( Book )
2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 838 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"May R. Berenbaum's initial collection of insect cameos, Ninety-nine Gnats, Nits, and Nibblers, was praised by Library Journal as an "illuminating book that may turn the disgust with which many people greet these fascinating creatures to curiosity and admiration." "This companion volume runs the gamut from the regrettably familiar, including mosquitoes, ticks, cockroaches, and what the author describes as "other arthropodan indignities," to the bizarre and obscure, creatures such as sheep keds, mantispids, and reindeer throat bots." "Berenbaum's aim is to bring science as painlessly as possible to those who thirst for knowledge about the little beings they encounter in their homes, gardens, and backyards--or on their bodies--but who have neither the patience nor the expertise to track down and read scientific texts. Combining a naturalist's keen observation of the subject with witty wordplay and amazing anecdotes, Berenbaum has provided a uniquely informative and entertaining book, useful not only for the scientific novice but also for entomologists who need a handy guide for their own use or for use in teaching, especially in introductory classes."--Jacket
Insect-plant interactions by J. R Miller( Book )
7 editions published between 1986 and 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The authoritative overviews in this volume provide a wealth of practical information on current approaches to the study of insect-plant interactions. Methods described include direct behavioral observation; assays of host finding, oviposition, and feeding behavior of insect herbivores; post-ingestion physiological effects; measurement of food quality and sensory responses of insects to plant stimuli; chemical isolation and identification of active phytochemicals; evaluation of plant resistance to insects; and the biochemistry of allelochemic interactions
Herbivores, their interactions with secondary plant metabolites by Gerald A Rosenthal( Book )
15 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It has been more than ten years since the first edition of this book was published. During this time, our understanding of the interactions between plants and the animals that consume them, as mediated by secondary compounds (allelochemicals) of plants, has grown dramatically. In the Herbivores: Their Interactions with Secondary Plant Metabolites, Second Edition, only those areas of research where significant progress has been made since 1979 are included, and most of the contributing authors are new. This edition has been split into two volumes due to the vast amount of new material that has been generated on this subject. Both volumes will be of interest to evolutionary biologists, agriculturists, chemists, biochemists, physiologists, and ecologists. Volume 1, provides an exhaustive update and review of the chemical and biochemical bases for the role and function of allelochemicals in their defense against herbivores. Volume 2, scheduled for publication in April 1992, provides a current update of the research on the ecological roles and evolutionary nature of secondary plant metabolites in their interactions among plants and as protective agents against environmental stresses such as consumption by herbivores
Queen of the sun what are the bees telling us? by Taggart Siegel( Visual )
2 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The strange disappearance of the bees ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Documentary about mass deaths of bees all over the world. Increasingly each spring, beekeepers open their hives to find entire colonies wiped out. Surveys the science through conversations with top researchers such as entomologist May Berenbaum of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and biologist Paul Ehrlich of Stanford's Center for Conservation Biology. Makes a case that the industrial agricultural model is responsible for killing off the pollinators

Rats, bats & bugs ( Visual )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Travel the world and through time to see how these creatures live side-by-side with man. The mere thought of them sends shivers up the spine as they scurry in the dark and in our imaginations. Through the ages, we've feared them and worshipped them ... and they couldn't care less. Rats have lived side by side with humans since the very beginning. Bats, with their strange, leathery wings and nocturnal habits, were among the most feared animals in early Europe. And with some 30 million species of bugs on the planet, it's worth wondering whether man really is the dominant animal
