What the Reviewers said about Native Bees of the Sydney Region: A Field Guide

"Bee-lovers rejoice! Here at last is the help we've long needed, a field guide that's not only authoritative, but clearly written and beautifully illustrated. It certainly inspired this somewhat lazy bee-watcher to take a more hands-on (or at least lens-on) interest in the diverse and charming little native bees that share my garden."
-- Densey Clyne, Naturalist and Author

"This book has completely changed the way I look at bees."

"Native Bees of the Sydney Region will become the standard field reference for amateur and professional naturalists interested in Sydney's native bees. Teachers will appreciate the plain language and uncomplicated format, while secondary and tertiary students will use it as a window into that magical 'other' world of the Australian bush."
-- Brian Trench, Teacher in Charge, Camden Park Environmental Education Centre

"Insights into the mysterious nesting habits, preferred flora and identification of these wonderful insects."
-- Bruce White, Technical Specialist (Apiculture), NSW Agriculture
