Fascinating and mysterious social organisms, bees produce one of the most delectable substances on earth: honey. The Greeks call it "meli" but might have also called it "ambrosia" (the food of the gods) because of its divine (gastronomical) qualities. This course will focus on the intersection between the social life of bees and the production of honey. In our readings, discussions, and experiments, we will examine the life cycle of these insects, their elaborate rituals of flight, and the intricate communication systems they use in their work for the hive. Our activities will include visiting a fully operational apiary, sampling honeys of diverse origins and environments, and (ultimately) constructing and establishing several hives of our own for the spring.
