9781907807060: Bumblebees
Revue de presse :

The newly released 3rd edition of Bumblebees, number 6 of the Naturalists Handbooks series for ecology and identification by Pelagic Publishing, is a phenomenal resource. Focused on British bumblebees, this book is full of information about all aspects of the ecology of bumblebees which makes it a valuable resource for readers in any location. It s a book which is not overburdened with too much scientific data (although much is referenced), but still packs in a great deal of information, this book is very useful. I recently researched bumblebees for an Urban Species Profile and I wish I d had this book then because it contains all of the information I had to gather from many different resources. --Kelly Brenner at The Metropolitan Field Guide

...it really is THE book on bumblebees that you need whether you are an expert or a novice --Mark Avery

Having informed and taught the reader with much skillfully packaged knowledge the remainder of the book goes into greater detal on identification and even points the way to approaches for original work. Backing up these pointers with an exhaustive list of web resources and further reading. An essential book for anyone who has enjoyed the sight and sound of a bumblebee in their garden. --Bee World, Sept. 2011

If you've never looked at a Naturalists' Handbook then you're missing a treat. The 29 books in the series, primarily on various British insect groups, are designed to provide the amateur investigator with everything they need to know to make their own original contributions to science. The series was originally published by Cambridge University Press, then Richmond and the Company of Biologists, gradually going into decline until revitalised by Pelagic Publishing. One of the first books they've produced is this third edition of Bumblebees. Even if you've no professional interest in these furry little things, have you ever sat in the garden and wondered what they're up to? In 130 pages you are led through their natural history, foraging behaviour, uses to humans and their conservation problems in very simple (but far from simplistic) language, concentrating on the 6 common species (out of our current 24) and the 6 parasitic 'cuckoo' bumblebees. Uniquely, there is also a chapter on raising them all in captivity for study. To do this, you need to know which species is which and there is a lovely chapter on identification with keys, notes on the bits of morphology that help, distribution maps and a particularly useful 'Quick-check key' to the commoner species based mainly on thorax and 'tail' colour - even I could make it work in a few minutes in the garden. This is backed up by the high quality colour plates with drawings of each species that are a superb feature of these handbooks. The final chapter gives suggestions for independent study from sampling stomach contents to looking at the pollen they carry to recording distributions. A wonderful book to read, use and enjoy; and top marks to Pelagic Publishing for revitalising this invaluable series. --Peter Thomas, The Bulletin Dec 2011, British Ecological Society
