Bees and natural history

Bees flourished along with the flourishing of natural historical research in the early nineteenth century. Samuel Bagster, Edward Bevan, François Huber, Robert Huish, and Thomas Nutt all published works directly challenging past conceptions of the social organization of bee colonies and contributing to the advance of apicultural literature. While there was little agreement among them, these natural historians worked to expand the available knowledge regarding bees and their management. The following selections are highlighted for the significance of their content at the time published.
