Bumblebee pollination supports multi-billion-dollar agricultural industries.
We aim to:
Learn more about the 250 species of bumblebee in the world and the identification difficulties that have lead to nearly 3000 different names.
Find out about cryptic species and how DNA analysis is helping to distinguish between them.
Find out about the IUCN Bumblebee Specialist Group, set up to assess the conservation needs of bumblebee species world-wide.
Research entomologist specialising in bees.
The first comprehensive guide to North American bumble bees to be published in more than a century, this book is richly illustrated with colour photographs, diagrams, range maps, and graphs of seasonal activity patterns.
