Bee Books:
Wild Bees Field Study Guides, Ecology, Gardening & Conservation

I refer to a number of books when I am writing some of my articles.  Some of these are identification guides, some are conservation books, and others a combination of both.

Here's a selection of books I recommend - I have managed to write fuller reviews for some of these books, and my intention is to update this page further with more reviews. 

If you are a publisher or author, and would like me to review a book, please contact me via my Contact Page.  Please note that I whilst I will not write negative reviews, I will not include or promote a book I do not like on my website.  Thank you.
