Stingless Bees of Mexico: The Biology, Management and Conservation of an Ancient Heritage

Stingless Bees of Mexico: The Biology, Management and Conservation of an Ancient Heritage by José Javier G. Quezada-Euán
English | PDF | 2018 | 296 Pages | ISBN : 331977784X | 19.19 MB

The stingless bees are the most diverse group of highly social bees and are key species in our planet’s tropical and subtropical regions, where they thrive. In Mexico, the management of stingless bees dates back centuries, and they were an essential part of the culture and cosmogony of native peoples like the Maya. In recent decades a vast amount of information has been gathered on stingless bees worldwide. This book summarizes various aspects of the biology and management of stingless bees, with special emphasis on the Mexican species and the traditions behind their cultivation. Much of the information presented here was produced by the author and the team of researchers at the Universidad Autónoma de Yucatán in the course of three decades of working with these insects. Given the breadth of its coverage, the book offers an equally valuable reference guide for academics, students and beekeepers alike.

Reciprocity in Human Societies: From Ancient Times to the Modern Welfare State

Reciprocity in Human Societies: From Ancient Times to the Modern Welfare State by Antti Kujala
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 227 Pages | ISBN : 3319960555 | 3.26 MB

Presenting new insights into reciprocity, this book combines Marcel Mauss’s well-known gift theory with Barrington Moore’s idea of mutual obligations linking rulers and the ruled. Teasing out the interrelatedness of these approaches, Reciprocity in Human Societies suggests that evolutionary psychology reveals a human tendency for reciprocity and collaboration, not only in a mutually cooperative way but also through increasing retributive moral emotions. The book discusses various historical societies and the different models of the current welfare state—Nordic (social democratic), conservative, and liberal— and the repercussions of the neoliberal policies of tax havens, tax cuts, and austerity with a cross-disciplinary approach that bridges evolutionary psychology, sociology, and social anthropology with history.
