The much-loved Sunday Times bestselling, Samuel Johnson Prize-shortlisted author goes on a hunt for bumblebees, taking us from the Salisbury Plain to Sussex hedgerows, from Poland to Patagonia. This charming book will inspire you to think about the ways in which we are all responsible for the future of our world. Through his scientific expertise and passion for conservation Goulson shows us nature's resilience against the odds, and that beauty hides in the most surprising places.
Dave Goulson studied biology at Oxford University and is now Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Sussex. Bumblebees are his passion - he has published over 250 articles on their biology, and founded the Bumblebee Conservation Trust in 2006.
