Here is a man who has worked with native bees for 50 years! His fascination hasn’t dimmed, and here he gives us a detailed guide to the estimated 2,000 species in Australia: describes their form and function; life-cycle stages; nest architecture; sociality; and relationships with plants. Also contains systematic accounts of the 5 families and 58 genera so you can identify them down to the species level. The most interesting of these species are given space. Great photos as well!
