Colletidae nesting biology (Hymenoptera: Apoidea)
Colletidae are unique among bees for certain aspects of their nesting biology. In this review, attributes of colletid nesting are evaluated and discussed in light of a novel phylogenetic hypothesisExpand
Blister beetles (Coleoptera: Meloidae) of Wisconsin: Distribution and ecology
TLDR
It is suggested that the manuscript should be rewritten in a chapters-by- chapters format to facilitate more detailed discussion of the author’s motivations and methods. Expand
Morphological Specializations in Central European Bees for the Uptake of Pollen from Flowers with Anthers Hidden in Narrow Corolla Tubes (Hymenoptera: Apoidea)
TLDR
A literature survey reveals that morphological specializations enabling female bees to collect pollen efficiently at narrow-tubed flowers are widespread and must have evolved many times during bee evolution. Expand
Commensal nematodes in the glands, genitalia, and brood cells of bees (apoidea).
TLDR
Seven species of bees from the eastern United States, representing four families in the Apoidea, were dissected and examined for nematode associates, revealing two types of humoral host defense reactions. Expand
Nest Suitability, Fine-Scale Population Structure and Male-Mediated Dispersal of a Solitary Ground Nesting Bee in an Urban Landscape
TLDR
The fine-scale population structure of the solitary bee Colletes inaequalis in an urbanized landscape is investigated and the importance of density and distribution of suitable nesting patches for enhancing bee population abundance and connectivity in human dominated habitats is emphasized. Expand
WHAT GOVERNS PROTEIN CONTENT OF POLLEN: POLLINATOR PREFERENCES, POLLEN–PISTIL INTERACTIONS, OR PHYLOGENY?
TLDR
This database compares pollen protein concentration with pollination mode, pollen collection by bees, and distance from stigma to ovule, after accounting for phylogeny through paired phylogenetic comparisons and a nested ANOVA including taxonomic rank. Expand
Male mate‐seeking and mating behaviors of Eucera nipponensis (Hymenoptera: Apidae) at a nectarless orchid habitat: Are empty flower patches a profitable rendezvous site?
TLDR
The male mate‐seeking and mating behaviors of the Japanese long‐horned bee Eucera nipponensis at habitats of the food‐deceptive orchid Cymbidium goeringii are described and it is suggested that a small number of the males could receive a “sexual reward” (i.e. mating opportunities) in return for their pollination work. Expand
The bee fauna of an Atlantic coastal plain tidal marsh community in Southern New England, USA
 With growing evidence of changes in local abundance, geographical range, and species diversity of wild bees, it is imperative to document wild bee communities in representative habitats throughoutExpand
The biology and prevalence of fungal diseases in managed and wild bees.
TLDR
There is a clear disparity in research on fungi associated with managed compared to wild bees, leaving gaps in understanding of fungal pathogen epidemiology, and filling these gaps is an important step towards mitigating the impact ofFungal diseases in bees. Expand
