Abstract
The keeping of gentle, resistant and productive honey bees requires intensive selective breeding. A short description concerning the biology of the honey bee is followed by the explanation of genetic features of bee colonies. The video then shows the practical management of colonies and the evaluation of the most important characters in performance testing. (With close-up shots and computer animation).
