A Guide to the Bees of Singapore
Our City in Nature would not be complete without the array of beautiful bee species that serve as some of our most important pollinators. A collaboration between the National Parks Board and the University of Singapore, this guide reveals the remarkable diversity of bees found in various habitats across Singapore, from tiny honey-producing stingless bees to giant wood-excavating carpenter bees.
The book includes 96 species accounts covering all the regularly encountered bees in Singapore, including close-up photographs and diagnostic information, a complete checklist of all bee species known from Singapore, and tips on bee-friendly gardening. It will enable budding naturalists, citizen scientists and researchers to identify the bees found in various habitats and provide a resource for students and teachers to discover the fascinating lives of these important insects.
