Editorial Reviews

Review

"The authors have produced a valuable and easy-to-read book. . . . The book is arranged in a highly useful format that is suitable for the beginner as well as the seasoned entomologist. The book is highly recommended as a vehicle for bee awareness and an introduction to the most common families in the United States and Canada."---Howard O. Clark, Jr., Western North American Naturalist

"This book includes excellent photography and uses basic language explaining technical terms; it is not an identification guide but gives detailed descriptions of ecology for each genus, something not previously covered before. The book provides the first comprehensive and user friendly guide to North American bees, which is suitable for people wanting an introduction or to expand their knowledge of different bee families. In particular those interested in developing their knowledge and skills of solitary bees will find this book incredibly useful. You do not have to live in North America to find this book of interest as we share many bee families. A worthy addition to anyone's collection."---Nikki Gammans, British Journal of Entomology and Natural History

"This book introduces you to the bees you're likely to find nearby. It has 900 color photos to help you identify them. It’s also packed with useful information, including pollination habits and how to attract different species to your yard."---Matt Miller, Cool Green Science

"This is the best general guide to bees this reviewer has seen."---P.K. Lago, Choice

"The Bees in Your Backyard is an easy-to-use and entertaining reference that can help you identify bees you might find cruising around your flowers.", American Gardener

"The volume is rich in information, logically put together, and full of wonderful pictures. . . . This valuable publication should adorn the bookshelves of gardeners, professional melittologists, urban naturalists, and elementary school students, and should be seen as indispensable for gaining a deeper understanding of the wild ecology of their backyards."---Marc W. Cadotte, Quarterly Review of Biology

"The ultimate bee book for bee enthusiasts and experts alike.", Bookseller Buyer's Guide

"[A] well-written, informative and beautifully photographed reference on North America's bees.", The Chronicle Herald

"If you have ever asked, ‘what kind of bee is that?' The Bees in Your Backyard is the book for you. It is a must-have for bee lovers of all stripes."---Wild about Ants blog,

"The Bees in Your Backyard provides an engaging introduction to the roughly 4,000 bee species found in the United States and Canada, dispelling common myths about native solitary bees while offering essential tips for telling them apart. The book features more than 900 stunning color photos of bees living all around us. . . . There is even a full chapter on how to attract them to your backyard. . . . This book provides the most comprehensive and accessible guide to all bees found in the United States and Canada."---Melanie M. Kirby, Mother Earth News --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

"This book provides an easy-to-understand guide to the thousands of bees found in North America. The Bees in Your Backyard is a great place for novice bee enthusiasts to start and an exceptional reference for experts."―Kelly Allin, contributor to The Bee: A Natural History --This text refers to the paperback edition.
