What does the honeybee see? And how do we know?
by Adrian Horridge
Publisher: ANU E Press 2009
This book is the only account of what the bee, as an example of an insect, actually detects with its eyes. The author sets out the history of how bee vision came to be understood, with an account of a century of neglect of old experimental results, errors of interpretation, sharp disagreements, and failures of the scientific method. The erratic path to understanding makes interesting reading for anyone with an analytical mind who thinks about the methods of science or the engineering of seeing machines.
