9780007174508: Bumblebees (Collins New Naturalist)

A detailed and up-to-date account of the behaviour and ecology of bumblebees. This group of relatively large, colourful and familiar insects are a very popular subject of study because their behaviour can be observed without the use of elaborate equipment, enabling amateur and experienced entomologists alike to get close to these colourful and social creatures. "Bumblebees" is an entirely new addition to the increasingly popular New Naturalist series, and is written by an expert in the field. Ted Benton provides a detailed and comprehensive account of the lives of the 25 species of bumblebee found throughout the UK, which includes acclaimed colour photographs of the sexes and castes of all species, detailed photographs of the bumblebee habitats, detailed key to help aid identification, original anatomical line drawings, and the latest findings on conservation status and habitat requirements.
