This excellent book gives a very comprehensive overview of the bees of North America and Canada.

It's ideal for anyone who wishes to learn more about bees, their habitats, behaviours, and also provides some of the best guidance to help you identify the different species, that I have seen available.

Professor Goulson's book is a text book primarily for ecology students, but the summaries of scientific research presented are fairly easy to read.  In my view, this is a book for at least the more serious enthusiast.  Very informative book.  See my in-depth review here.

Meadowland is a very beautiful nature diary written by John Lewis Stempel.  You can read a full review here, and a Q&A with him on this page.
