The papers of Watkins, an apicultural staff research assistant with the University of California at Davis, contain his notes on American beekeeping history and a wealth of information about other apiculturists, including John Harbison. Both the Apiculture Subject File and the Apiculturists Collection contain material on history and methods of beekeeping, with specific information on pollination, hive construction, diseases, and pesticides.
The Department also collects the archival records of beekeeping associations and organizations at the state and Apicultural research papers level.
Collections in apiculture comprise approximately 60 linear feet of material and date from to the present. Though collections tend to highlight the history of beekeeping in California, there are no geographical or chronological exclusions.
Introduction InJohn Harbison imported sixty-seven colonies of bees into Sacramento and initiated a new era in California beekeeping. All materials are in English; formats include manuscript material, photographs, and realia. University of California faculty and extension agents played a seminal role in the development of apicultural science, and the papers of Laidlaw, Eckert, and Watkins reflect their research in this field.
The Department continues to enhance its holdings in this field by acquiring beekeeping supply catalogs and ephemeral materials. Related information in can be found under the subject heading of Entomology.
Records of his voyage and his innovative hives are held in the Department of Special Collections and form the basis for other apicultural collections relating to the management of honeybees, both for the pollination of agricultural crops and for honey production.
In addition to the Harbison papers, the Department holds the papers of other early California apiculturists who made significant contributions to the field. The papers of John McCubbin contain his autobiography and correspondence relating to commercial beekeeping in the late 19th and early 20th centuries in California, as well as photographs of Harbison and other early apiculturists.
The Richter papers focus on queen rearing, and contain correspondence, photographs, and scrapbooks concerning apiculture in California, Europe, and South America.
Laidlaw, Professor of Entomology, Emeritus, left a small collection of correspondence relating to his pioneering research in queen bee artificial insemination, while the Eckert papers contain correspondence and articles relating to all aspects of apiculture.The Journal of Apicultural Research, incorporating Bee World, publishes original research articles, original theoretical papers, notes, comments and authoritative reviews on scientific aspects of the biology, ecology, natural history and culture of all types of bee (superfamily Apoidea).
The Journal of Apicultural Research is a refereed scientific journal dedicated to bringing the best research on bees.
The Journal of Apicultural Research publishes original research articles, original theoretical papers, notes, comments and authoritative reviews on scientific aspects of the biology, ecology. The Journal of Apicultural Research (JAR) was first published in under the Editorship of Dr Eva Crane, Director of the then Bee Research Association (BRA).
The journal was envisaged as an. author of over books and papers on beekeeping and research, was currently in Thailand for two weeks as a Consultant to IBRA Council.

The Journal of Apicultural Science is a scientific, English-language journal that publishes both original research articles and review papers covering all aspects of the life of bees (superfamily Apoidea) and broadly defined apiculture.
