You’ve probably heard “save the bees!” as news reports of global insect declines flood the media. But do you know which bees need saving? Over 4000 species of bees inhabit North America, and most of them don’t live in hives or make honey. In this lecture, PhD student and bee expert Nick Dorian will teach the natural history and conservation of wild bees. Together, we’ll examine closely the varied lifestyles of bees, their habitat needs, and their intricate relationships with flowering plants and other insects. You’ll come away knowing how to identify and support bees in your backyards and with a newfound appreciation for these charismatic pollinators.
