Martha Gilliam did pioneering research on the microbes that inhabit the bee and the beehive.  Her work was widely published during her career, but a bit difficult to locate online.  We spent two days at the Tucson Bee Lab scanning

two large books containing all of her published research.  We would like to thank the Carl Hayden Bee Lab in Tucson for their hospitality while we were visiting.


There are 2 books, each broken up into a number of parts.  Part 1 of Book 1 includes the TOC for the book (Book 2 has a separate TOC).  These are large PDF files, it may take some time to download, so please be patient.


Book 1:


Part1, Part2, Part3, Part4, Part4a, Part5, Part6, Part7


Book 2:


TOC, Part8, Part9, Part10, Part11, Part12
