About this book

Language: Swedish

Dave Goulson has always been obsessed with wildlife, from his childhood menagerie of exotic pets and dabbling in experimental taxidermy to his ground-breaking research into the mysterious ways of the bumblebee and his mission to protect our rarest bees.

Once commonly found in the marshes of Kent, the short-haired bumblebee now only exists in the wilds of New Zealand, the descendants of a few queen bees shipped over in the nineteenth century. Dave Goulson's passionate drive to reintroduce it to its native land is one of the highlights of a book that includes exclusive research into these curious creatures, history's relationship with the bumblebee and advice on how to protect it for all time.

One of the UK's most respected conservationists and the founder of the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, Goulson combines Gerald Durrell-esque tales of a child's growing passion for nature with a deep insight into the crucial importance of the bumblebee. He details the minutiae of life in their nests, sharing fascinating research into the effects intensive farming has had on our bee populations and on the potential dangers if we are to continue down this path.

Summary in Swedish:
Galen i Humlor är en gränslös kärleksförklaring till en liten men mycket betydelsefull varelse. Med engagemang och värme berättar biologiprofessorn Dave Goulson allt som är värt att veta om humlor (och lite till). Här ryms också en större berättelse. Hur humlorna mår säger nämligen det mesta om hur vår planet mår. Och slutsatsen är tydlig – låt oss odla vår trädgård.
