    One Reply to “Bees: A Natural History”

    1. This book is an amazing resource of over 20,000 species of bees. (Yes, I said over 20,000 species!) The writing is concise and easy to understand, and it is accompanied by wonderful pictures of several of the different species.

    2. Great book, lovely photos! Shame about the many typos.I do like the fact that it isn't just focused on honeybees. There are a lot of other interesting types of bees, some of which are solitary, others which create communities to various different extents.

    3. There is reason enough to read this given this one sentence in the introduction of this book: "And do honeybees actually have something to tell us about the search for extra-terrestrial intelligence (SETI)?"

    4. This book shows the significance of bees and the food we eat. Although many bee species are mentioned this book focuses on the honey bee. Beautiful color photos and drawings and very readable to all audiences.

    5. Loads of information about bees worldwide and their behavior. Very readable with beautiful pictures.

    6. A well written book which I enjoyed reading. The authors passion for bees really comes through in the text. The language isn't overly jargonistic which makes it open to al to read.

    7. Yay! This was so good. I learned so much about bees and now I'm ready to get into beekeeping! Great photos and lots of information.

    8. Fascinating history and explanations about the different types of bees. Incredible pictures. I was hoping it would help identify some of the bees in my yard but no such luck.
