Southwest Wings: Summer Festival Free Talks – Justin Schmidt: The Biology of Bees

The 20,000 world-wide species of bees are crucial pollinators of most of the world’s plants including many human food crops (not to mention the food plants of most birds and other animals).

I will describe the life histories and biologies of many families and species of bees inhabiting our region, including briefly discussing honeybees and how these introduced bees have affected our lives and environment.
