The volume is rich in information, logically put together, and full of wonderful pictures. . . . This valuable publication should adorn the bookshelves of gardeners, professional melittologists, urban naturalists, and elementary school students, and should be seen as indispensable for gaining a deeper understanding of the wild ecology of their backyards.–-Marc W. Cadotte, Quarterly Review of Biology
