Combining the expertise of many of Australia’s leading native bee researchers, this book is a guide to observing and keeping Australia’s broad range of native bee species.

Australian Native Bees, now in a slightly updated new edition, provides a wealth of advice on how you can support and enjoy our native bees, whether you grow broad-acre crops or have an urban backyard.

You can learn about:

•  how bees build nests, forage and provide crucial pollination services

•  how you can examine and recognise our solitary and semi-social bees: blue banded bees, teddy bear bees, carpenter bees, leafcutters, resin bees, cuckoo bees and more

•  urban bee ecology

•  how to build a bee hotel

•  how to keep the popular stingless bees in specialised hives

•  the importance of native bees and other crop pollinators, and how managed native bees can be used to pollinate crops

•  bee biosecurity.
