The county of Kent has the highest diversity of bumblebee species in the UK. The Bumblebees of Kent aims to provide a comprehensive guide to bumblebee ecology and offers an inclusive introduction to their identification. It discusses the importance of bumblebees, their decline and how we can help. It also includes detailed descriptions of bumblebee ecology and anatomy, followed by identification of each species present in Kent including a map of their distribution.
"Kent has more bumblebee species than anywhere else in the UK, and may soon have one more thanks to the work of the lead author of this book in reintroducing an extinct species. The Bumblebees of Kent provides a fascinating and authoritative guide to these endearing and important insects, written by two great champions of bumblebee conservation."
- Prof Dave Goulson, University of Sussex
"There are a lot of bumblebee species in the Garden of England and this book is a really nice summary of where to see them. A must for local naturalists and research biologists."
- Dr Paul Williams, Natural History Museum London
