Arboreal Apiculture Salon

The Salon will focuses on what we may call ‘Stillpoint’, a transitional time between past and future, very creative but also challenging. It has an inwardly and outwardly dimension and is significant for our relationships to the entire web of life. ‘Stillpoint' invites us into a reflection of a world in motion and continues our inquiry into the ongoing unfolding of our relationship with honeybees.

Richard's book is a major reimagining of how evolutionary forces work, revealing how mating preferences—what Darwin termed “the taste for the beautiful”—create an extraordinary range of ornament in the animal world. Prum introduces agency and perception as essential components for evolutionary processes and challenges the dogma that holds that natural selection explains every branch on the tree of life: which species thrive, which wither away to extinction, and what features each evolves.

We ask Richard about his unpublished work on pollination and bees to understand the influences of beauty and way the selection process is shaped by the memory of things beautiful ... or sometimes dangerous.
