Every Beekeeper Should Have a Copy
This is an invaluable reference work. A landmark work in Australian beekeeping, it has a place on the bookshelf of every beekeeper. Why? Every beekeeper needs an understanding of the way that their bees fit into the ecosystem.
Trees and how they help your bees
To understand how to keep healthy colonies, you have to understand the plants your bees are working. This book describes over 500 plants and trees, with photographs for easy identification, and rates these plants for their value to European honey bees as a source of nectar, pollen, or both. It covers plant species present in southern Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, and Tasmania.
Pollen is for pollinators
...And we know that pollinators are life. This book is the result of 30 years of research by Doug Somerville, NSW DPI technical specialist and author, and it pulls together real-world experience from hundreds of other beekeepers. There is no better way for a beekeeper to gain an understanding of their natural environment.
