Human encounters with wolves book
Swiss filmmaker Markus Imhoof narrates the mass dying of the European honeybee at the beginning of the twenty-first century in his prize-winning documentary, More than Honey. The widely popular documentary deals with the severe health problems honeybees experience in different parts of the world. Imhoof’s film ends on an optimistic note, as he introduces attempts to breed resilient honeybees. A group of Australian scientists succeeded in breeding a hybrid of domesticated honeybees and wild bees. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, honeybees and wolves are regarded as keystone species, both of them attracting considerable attention in European societies. Human–wildlife interactions are seen through “a multispecies lens”, implying that they are influenced by phenomena researched by multispecies studies. In their cultural theory orientation, Human–Animal Studies is based primarily on the principles of gender and body studies and adopts the removal of the separation of nature and culture as laid down in feminist and post-colonial theory.
