IBRA 2009 Softback 36 pp. ISBN: 0 86098 262 9 Taken from the Pollen Loads of the Honeybee, these drawings are of outstanding artistic merit and offer the possibility of identifying the pollen forms which are most frequently collected by bees. For beginners these drawings will do good service as an introduction to the pollen analysis of honey. The drawings need no explanation other than a name - the family group, the Latin scientific name and the common English name - thus making the book independant of language barriers. This means it can be appreciated in many countries where the original work was unknown or is now out of reach because of rarity and cost.
