Field Guide to Bumblebees of Great Britain and Ireland

By Mike Edwards Martin Jenner

Bumblebees are popular and well-loved insects. Yet, surprisingly, the majority of people know little or nothing about them. Over the last two decades, populations of some of the rarer species have seriously declined, and even the commoner ones are no longer as numerous as they once were. This has given cause for alarm since they are important pollinators of wild and garden flowers, fruit trees ad some crops. Bumblebees population have crashed for a number of reasons and we need to know more about these fascinating insects. This guide is for people from all works of life and aims to create a greater awareness and knowledge of bumblebees. • How to identify the majority of bumble species in the world. • Easy-to-use quick identification chart. • 25 species described, with colour photographs of both sexes, plus life history. • Cross-referencing system with symbols to help more accurate identification in the field. • Habitat requirements for conservation action and how to attract bumblebees to your garden.
