Product Description

Taken from the Pollen Loads of the Honeybee, these drawings are of outstanding artistic merit and offer the possibility of identifying the pollen forms which are most frequently collected by bees. For beginners these drawings will do good service as an introduction to the pollen analysis of honey. The drawings need no explanation other than a name - the family group, the Latin scientific name and the common English name - thus making the book independant of language barriers. This means it can be appreciated in many countries where the original work was unknown or is now out of reach because of rarity and cost.

Although originally published in the 1950's this an excellent book. The only drawback is that some of the newer crops such as rape are not included. If you are looking for a simple pollen reference book this will cover most types of pollen you will find.

Note that this is not a paperback, it is a stapled 'book' not quite of the quality maybe you would expect. The information is clear and it is certainly useful in content, but be aware that it is in this pamphlet style format, rather than what I would call a book. I think this could have been clearer in the description, so expectations are managed. However, the content is, as I say, very good and useful.

"..the drawings ..are of outstanding artistic merit and offer the possibility of identifying the pollen forms ..most frequently collected by bees. For beginners these drawings will do good service as an introduction to the pollen analysis of honey". My quotes from: Richard Jones, IBRA, October 2009 (introductory page of the booklet).
Can't add to this, except to say it is a very inexpensive booklet and such a good cause!

Good drawings of pollen even though does not contain all of the pollens we need to identify as beekeepers, but this is to be expected as these came from a book written in the 50's
