Bumblebees are familiar and colourful insects, and they play important roles as pollinators of crops and wildflowers. While some species are now reared commercially and have been distributed around the world to pollinate tomatoes, others have declined greatly. This book outlines the behaviour and ecology of these fascinating insects, and suggests areas where further research is needed.
