Produced in conjunction with the invertebrate conservation charity Buglife, this much requested new 8-page chart shows 28 species of bee, most of which can commonly be seen flying in domestic gardens.
As well as the `Big Six` bumblebees, the chart includes representatives of mining bees, cavity-nesting bees and cuckoo bees. Silhouettes next to each image show the typical life-size for each species.
Text on the reverse side includes a table, with full cross-referencing to the images, which gives further information on flight periods, distribution of each species in Britain, and useful pointers to help distinguish between similar-looking species.
This chart is part of the FSC`s range of fold-out charts, designed to help users identify of a wide range of plants and animals. Each chart is laminated to make it shower-proof and robust for use outdoors.
Clear colour illustrations and text by experts in the subject make these valuable resources for all age groups.
