From the author of the Samuel Johnson Prize-shortlisted Sunday Times bestseller A Sting in the Tale

In 2003 Dave Goulson bought a derelict farm in the heart of rural France, together with 33 acres of surrounding meadow. Over the course of a decade, he created a place for his beloved bumblebees to thrive along with myriad insects of every kind.

In this book you will learn how a deathwatch beetle finds its mate, about the importance of houseflies, why butterflies have spots on their wings, about dragonfly sex, bed-bugs and wasps. But it is also a wake-up call, urging us to cherish and protect life on earth in all its forms. A Buzz in the Meadow is a captivating look at our natural world and a call to arms for nature-lovers everywhere.

Review:

"Wonderfully entertaining... Engages the reader as much with the eloquence of its argument as with the charm of its humour" (Mark Cocker Mail on Sunday)

"Goulson writes with infectious enthusiasm... A lively and important read." (Ian Critchley Sunday Times)

"Had me exclaiming with delight... Goulson’s book is juicy and delicious, layered with flavours and steeped in culture" (Daily Telegraph)

"Buy this book, give it as a present. It is required reading for being a human in the 21st century." (Matthew Cobb, professor of zoology at the Univerity of Manchester New Scientist)

"A gripping account of the importance of insects to our environment.... Goulson has an easy-going style and an enthusiastic yet rigourous approach to material that could seem dry ... Goulson’s patient attempts to establish a link between [bees’ colony collapse disorder and a new class of insecticide] become as gripping as any forensic thriller." (Suzi Feay Financial Times)

"For those who think of science as being dry and boring this book will be a revelation. Goulson’s book is juicy and delicious, layered with flavours and steeped in culture." (Nicola Davies, 5 stars Daily Telegraph)

"Glorious... The real pleasure of reading this book is hearing the hum of biodiversity rising from every page." (Damian Whitworth The Times)

"A wonderfully entertaining one-man campaign... A blend of scientific evidence and amusing travelogue that engages the reader as much with the eloquence of its argument as with the charm of its humour." (Mark Cocker, 5 stars Mail on Sunday)

"An inspirational case for awareness and appreciation of the teeming diversity." (John Akeroyd Spectator)

"Urgent and impassioned." (Max Liu Independent)

Book Description:
