4.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent ouvrage ! 9 juillet 2014

L'auteur compile des recherches qu'il a mené jusqu'ici. De nombreuses références et expérimentations qui étaient inédites pour moi. Les mécanismes décrits pour le choix de nidification d'un essaim sont extra-ordinaires et pourraient nous faire réfléchir un nouveau système communautaire de prise de décision. Les RT ou les +1 des réseaux sociaux n'en sont pas loin.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is a remarkable book! Layperson or bee expert, buy this book! Fascinating! 2 novembre 2010
Par Robert MacKimmie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Not only is the research completely sound and refreshing, the graphic representation of compelling information is truly revelatory.

If you are going to be shipwrecked on an island, even if that island has no honeybees, you should take this one book. It just seems that Thomas Seeley has compiled a most fascinating explanation of one of the bees' most curious and intelligent behaviors - and the graphic illustration and charts lend insight in clean, straight-forward, "ahh-hah" kind of ways, less understandable until now given the new, brilliant and powerfully simple conveyance.

The Epilogue should be read first because it provides the most fitting setup: Martin Lindauer observed a clustered swarm of bees on a bush and noticed that the waggle-dancing bees were covered in black soot, red brick dust and grey soil. Calling them dirty dancers, a multiple of them were obviously attempting to convince others regarding the merits of a nearby chimney. That started his research into bee group decision making, and thus, Thomas Seeley's remarkable treatise on the subject.

This would be a fascinating coffee table book, with insighful information for any curious book-flipper. For seasoned beekeepers, the photos, illustrations and information presented solidifies and exemplifies many of the things that we already know. Best example: on page 38, Figure 2.12 is a photo illustrating the underside of some house bees and shows how the wax chips are produced from the abdomens of the worker bees. I know this but had never seen it before. To see the photos is to gain much deeper understanding, and that quality of knowledge shared is represented throughout the entire book.

As an informational tome, this book is beautiful, fascinating, timely, informative, curious, insightfully supportive, educational and moves what we know forward in terms of an improved general understanding of the bees' intricate and remarkable intelligence.

Thank you Thomas Seeley, your illustrator, your graduate and undergraduate research students. I feel like a more comprehensive beekeeper by the richer understanding that your work has provided. It's a terrific book for the lay person and experienced beekeeper alike. Beautiful and fascinating!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful book filled with true passion 19 octobre 2010
Par mnomalley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Tom Seeley shares his 30+ years of work with honeybees to reveal how these beautiful creatures, living in dense societies, are able to make collective, speedy, and accurate decisions. This is a remarkable book that showcases both the creativity of researchers who have uncovered the secrets of bees as well as the success of one of Earth's most adaptive inhabitants. This book clearly contains lessons on how groups can make better decisions, but you don't need the lessons to appreciate and enjoy what Seeley has to say about these little marvels. I happen to like reading about the logic behind the research and some of the experiments that Seeley and others have conducted, but if that isn't for you, you can browse sections and get to the nice summaries the author provides at the end of most sections. In the end, you will see that democracy really works.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Bee Inspired 30 octobre 2010
Par James O. Martin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
This book is destined to be a modern classic. It is a blend of the very best science and inspired, eloquent writing. In 230 beautifully illustrated pages Seeley, a Cornell U professor, tells the complete story of a nearly perfect representational democracy. Bees have developed a decision making process that allows them to make a rational decision about a live or die choice they must make: where to make their next home. Seeley has deciphered all of the elements of this annual process and lets us in on the secrets of the bees. He is careful to show scientific verification to all of his ideas and documents the painstaking observations that back up his assertions. Before reading this book I was an admirer of the evolved social community that makes up a bee hive. Now I am in awe of these wonderful creatures. I thank Thomas D. Seeley for sharing his love and enthusiasm as well as his remarkable expertise.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Well written, very informative 23 juillet 2011
Par Brett A. Fishwild - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I am a scientist by nature and trade, though I am a geologist with no level of expertise or knowledge in regards to insects. After hearing another story about colony collapse disorder on NPR, I researched the available books on honeybees at Amazon (was surprise at how few there are) and settled on Dr. Seeley's book. Great read! I found the structure of the book well thought out, each chapter leading into subsequent chapters. Each chapter also dealt with a discrete topic and flushed out the details thoroughly. Also - I enjoyed the fact that his writing style was easily accessible for the laymen. Some books of this ilk get caught in up what level of jargon or detail to use, but Dr. Seeley found a very reasonable position on this. Being an analytical type person, I really enjoyed how each theory was tested and described. The reader will see for example the criteria bees use for siting new hives, how they test some of those criteria, and of course the main topic - how the scouts tell the colony about their searches for new homes and then how the colony reaches a consensus amongst the various choices the scouts bring back.

The reader should understand that this is not an all-encompassing book on bees, there is not much in here on hive construction or life cycles or how foragers do their thing. But there was enough on those topics for a novice like me to understand the context of what Dr. Seeley was writing about. At the end, I was not entirely convinced of using the bees "democratic" style in real life human situations. But it was good that Dr. Seeley gave real anecdotal examples from his university meetings and from New England town hall meetings to discuss it - other authors may have simply made the theoretical premise and left it at that.

I look forward to reading his other book - Wisdom of the Hive - to read up on the foragers. Just wish the price would come down some! We get spoiled on the $5-$10 cheap paperbacks and are lamentably surprised at the price of niche scientific books. But Dr. Seeley does a great job here.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A New Paradigm 21 mars 2011
Par J. A. Haverstick - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
This book is great in so many ways. The clever experimentation is a case study in natural history science. The woods and dales of Ithaca, New York, as a backdrop and even a reference to the decision procedures of the Ithaca monthly meeting* bring warm memories to this onetime upstate Friend and lifetime beekeeper.

Beyond the natural history and bee behavior, I was also absorbed as a sometime philosophy teacher. While most popular approaches these days still emphasize the brain as some kind of linear computer (I'll spare the details) the recent work in insect behavior ("Ants at Work",Gordon, 1999, comes to mind as another good example) exhibits quite a different model of decision making in insects which may, it turns out, be much more like the functioning of the cells in a real human brain than a computer is. And it's not the same old push-pull of pheronomes, temps, etc. With this book you'd be totally up to speed on the new paradigm!

Other reviews didn't go into it, so I mention it here. Has all sorts of repercussions for consciuosness, animal minds, etc. Everything best about natural history is here!

*Quakers are more beelike than some other folks, it seems.
