The number of people interested and active in keeping bees at an amateur level has continued to increase over the past few years in both rural and urban situations. This guide, aimed at beginning beekeepers, and the only one to be endorsed by the BBKA provides an authoritative text, along with clear photographs and illustrations. The book introduces the reader to beekeeping, including such areas as the workings of the colony, the structure of a hive, how to acquire bees and keep them healthy and what happens in each month in a beekeeping year. Each chapter is accompanied by anecdotes, answers to frequently asked questions and fascinating facts about bees and honey. The new edition includes new step-by-step sequences to illustrate procedures such as containing a swarm, identifying the queen, using a smoker and cleaning a hive as well as more information on different kinds of hives, disease management and many other key areas.

For years entomologists, ecologists, and botanists interested in pollination problems have urged bee specialists to prepare a key for identifying bee genera in North and Central America. Although regional keys exist, this extensively field-tested reference is the first to facilitate identification to the genus level of bees throughout the Northern (American) Hemisphere. More than 500 drawings and photographs illustrate nearly every step in this key to the 169 genera, with text in both English and Spanish. In the introduction, the authors describe how researchers already familiar with bee genera can streamline their use of the keys. Along with the comprehensive classification and discussion of features, the authors also provide practical advice to students embarking on their first attempts at bee identification. The notes on each genus give its range (for North and Central America), number of species, references to any revisional studies, subgenera, if any, and distinguishing features. The book indicates nest sites for those bees that do not nest in the ground and identifies hosts for socially parasitic and cleptoparasitic genera. The authors list changes in classification and nomenclature and summarize the current classification by genera and subgenera. The Bee Genera of North and Central America offers in one convenient volume an unprecedented compendium for entomologists, ecologists, beekeepers, and scientists involved in pollination studies.
