Field Guide to the Bees of Great Britain and Ireland
Field Guide to the Bees of Great Britain and Ireland
Bees have long interested and fascinated man, and as a cornerstone in plant pollination they are an indispensable group of insects. Nevertheless, many species are declining, and efforts to help determine distributions and changes in abundance have so far been hampered by a serious lack of identification resources. This eagerly anticipated new entry in the highly acclaimed British Wildlife Field Guides series will lay bare the complexities of identification, and is caters both for people new to the bee world as well as to more experienced recorders who wish to identify every species accurately. It provides the most recent information on the identification, ecology, status and distribution of all 275 bee species in Britain, Ireland and the Channel Islands.
