5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent insight into the great opportunities for bee research and the good times of a life science academic, 24 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Sting in the Tale (Hardcover)
Dave outlines his enthusiasm for the natural world in an engaging and lively manner, that will strike a chord among those who have a similar passion for natural history and should catch the interest of those who would like to know more about the world around us.
The chapters are nicely arranged to cover different aspects of bumblebees and each is an engaging read in it own right. You will find out a lot of about biological processes and systems in a very palatable manner, and if you wish to delve more deeply into the science, then he has written more academic works on Bumblebees. You are also able to gain some insight into the most enjoyable aspects of academic profession, as Dave's enquiring mind and focused ambitions have enabled him to gain the finance to travel the world and expose some fascinating new insights in conservation in general and bumblebees in particular. Who would ever have guessed that Bumblebees would make 'weeds' more damaging in Tasmania, or that Honey bees have the potential to reduce biodiversity ? Lots of fascinating insights, highly recommended !
