As I write this I'm watching a number of bee species foraging among the flowers of my cup plants Silphium perfoliatum just outside my dining room window The author makes the case very persuasively that we must take immediate steps to preserve these important pollinators or suffer the conseuences of future food insecurity He writes with passion and erudition about his special area of study in a readable style that kept me turning the pages He includes a useful and partially annotated bibliography as well as appendices on the names of the bee species discussed in the book One may read this delightful work as an introduction to bee biology as an account of doing important scientific research in the field as a cautionary tale about negative human effects on bee populations or as a clever treatise on the importance of ecological thinking As I watch the bees fumbling about in my flowers I have an even greater appreciation for the co evolutionary processes that have made this scene possible The subtitle of the book is Why All Bees Are at Risk and What We Can Do to Save Them I am convinced by the author's excellent arguments and intend to take seriously his suggestions for encouraging bees in my landscape Highly recommended
