    I have had this book on my wish list for a long time Bumblebees are fascinating creatures, vital for food, but until recently overlooked and under appreciated.This book is fascinating, the early chapters about bee physiology and thermo regulation have resulted in a couplebooks hitting my to read list and for me were probably the most interesting parts of the book.There s a lot of scientific study presented, mainly about flowers, pollination and co evolution as would be expected in a book I have had this book on my wish list for a long time Bumblebees are fascinating creatures, vital for food, but until recently overlooked and under appreciated.This book is fascinating, the early chapters about bee physiology and thermo regulation have resulted in a couplebooks hitting my to read list and for me were probably the most interesting parts of the book.There s a lot of scientific study presented, mainly about flowers, pollination and co evolution as would be expected in a book about pollinators but it is presented in an easy to understand way At no point did I feel out of my depth at all.Defintitely to be recommended if you want to learnabout bees and their behaviour

About the Author: Dave Goulson

After a childhood chasing butterflies Ecology, and MOBI ð and collecting bird s eggs, I studied Biology at Oxford University, and then did a PhD on butterfly ecology at Oxford Brookes University Shortly afterwards I got a lectureship at Bumblebees: Behaviour, PDF \ University of Southampton, where I stayed for years It was there that I began to specialize in bumblebee ecology and conservation In I became Professor of Biology and Stirling University In I also Behaviour, Ecology, and eBook ✓ founded the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, a charity devoted to reversing bumblebee declines In I moved to Sussex UniversityI have published over scientific articles on the ecology of bees and other insects, and am author of Bumblebees Behaviour, Ecology and Conservation , Oxford University Press and A Sting in the Tale , Jonathan Cape , a popular science book about bumblebees A Buzz in the Meadow Jonathon Cape is due to be published in September I am a Fellow of the Royal Entomological Society, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh In I was BBSRC Social Innovator of the Year and in I won the Marsh Award for Conservation Biology from the Zoological Society of London.
