"When you hover your mouse cursor over anything in the world, it will bring up a tooltip in the corner with more information and how you can use it - useful, huh!"

In-game there are a lot of different elements in the heads-up display (HUD) that help you while playing APICO, from the clock to the in-game tooltips! This page covers the different sections.

When a bee is discovered, it'll show as yellow in the hotbar. If a species is fully Conserved, you've found both the standard and Blessed variants, you've used a Microscope on that species 3 times AND discovered the Special Produce for that bee, the icon will go a lighter brighter yellow (and you'll have a badge marked on the chapter in the Apiarist's Almanac

Tooltips can show lots of things, like the items you can use this specific item with, the traits of a bee, the amount an item can sell for, and for crates it'll even show you the contents of the crate when expanded!
