The state of Michigan occupies an area between the Great Plains and the northeastern United States, bordering four Great Lakes, with diverse biogeographical regions. [...] Key Method The list was compiled from a critical review of published literature, museum specimens, and database records, supplemented by new collections. In total, 465 species are included in the checklist, including 38 new records, however evidence for 13 species is poor, several more species require taxonomic revision, and the presence of…Expand
An updated checklist of the bees (Hymenoptera, Apoidea, Anthophila) of Pennsylvania, United States of America
TLDR
An updated checklist of the bees of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, USA, is presented and includes a total of 23 exotic species and at least five species of conservation concern. Expand
Bees of Maine, with a State Species Checklist
Abstract We present a new county checklist developed from bee research in Maine since the 1800s. The list contains 278 bee species in 37 genera and 6 families, of which all but 8 are native, with ≥50Expand
Narrow pollen diets are associated with declining Midwestern bumble bee species.
TLDR
The hypothesis that species with narrower dietary niches are at greater risk of decline is supported, but it is not clear if narrow dietary nicches are a cause of declines, or if both are driven by an underlying factor such as proximity to the edge of climatic niches. Expand
Wild bees of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument: richness, abundance, and spatio-temporal beta-diversity
TLDR
A 4-year study of bees in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, found in southern Utah, USA, finding one of the richest bee faunas in the west; the large elevational gradient, incredible number of flowering plants, and the mosaic of habitats are all likely contributors to this rich assemblage of bees. Expand
A revision of the cleptoparasitic bee genus Epeolus Latreille for Nearctic species, north of Mexico (Hymenoptera, Apidae)
TLDR
The cleptoparasitic (cuckoo) bee genus Epeolus is revised for species occurring in North America, north of Mexico, and an updated checklist of all species known to occur in Canada and the United States of America is provided with comprehensive descriptions, diagnoses, and a single dichotomous key to aid in their identification. Expand
A new western Canadian record of Epeoloides pilosulus (Cresson), with discussion of ecological associations, distribution and conservation status in Canada
TLDR
A recently collected specimen of Epeoloides pilosulus from Alberta, Canada confirms this species from that province and greatly increases its known range in western North America. 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
Constrained patterns of pollen use in Nearctic Andrena (Hymenoptera: Andrenidae) compared with their Palaearctic counterparts
TLDR
The pattern of pollen use supports previous findings that pollens from certain botanical families cannot be used as a food source without physiological adaptations, but that this phenomenon is more pronounced in the Nearctic Andrena fauna. Expand
Bee (Hymenoptera: Apoidea: Anthophila) Functional Traits in Relation to Sampling Methodology in a Restored Tallgrass Prairie
TLDR
The results suggest that sampling of bee functional traits can be method-dependent, and this should be considered in assessments of functional trait composition. Expand
A Comparison of Drought-Tolerant Prairie Plants to Support Managed and Wild Bees in Conservation Programs
TLDR
Evaluated drought-tolerant native perennial plant species and 2 non-native plant species in three regions of Michigan for their ability to support honey bees and wild bees, suggesting that bee groups have distinct preferences for plant species. Expand

Documenting Persistence of Most Eastern North American Bee Species (Hymenoptera: Apoidea: Anthophila) to 1990–2009
TLDR
Most eastern North American bee species have persisted until recent times, with no evidence of widespread recent extinctions, and an absence of well-documented global extinctions of bee species does not warrant complacency regarding pollinator conservation. Expand
A distributional checklist of the leaf-cutting bees (Hymenoptera: Megachilidae) of Florida
The leaf-cutting bees are a diverse group which is commonly encountered all across the country. With over 600 North American species, most of which are in the genera Anthidium, Dianthidium, Stelis,Expand
A Survey and Historical Comparison of the Megachilidae (Hymenoptera: Apoidea) of Itasca State Park, Minnesota
TLDR
Species richness and diversity of Megachilidae in the new survey were both significantly lower than that of the historical collection but were not significantly different when species accumulation curves were extrapolated to estimate the true species richness. Expand
Taxonomic and Behavioral Composition of an Island Fauna: A Survey of Bees (Hymenoptera: Apoidea: Anthophila) on Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts
TLDR
The results underscore the role of maritime habitats underlain by sandy soils in sustaining regional diversity of bees in addition to Lepidoptera and other well-documented insect groups and reinforces the need for multi-year studies of bee faunas. Expand
Wool carder bees of the genus Anthidium in the Western Hemisphere (Hymenoptera: Megachilidae): diversity, host plant associations, phylogeny, and biogeography
TLDR
This is a comprehensive, broadly comparative study on the diversity, biology, biogeography, and evolution of Anthidium Fabricius, 1804, one of the most diverse megachilid genera, containing more than 160 species worldwide. Expand
Bees (Hymenoptera: Apoidea: Anthophila) of Gardiners Island, Suffolk County, New York
TLDR
A survey of the bee fauna of Gardiners Island, Suffolk County, NY, focuses on more than 10,000 bee specimens collected by net during 1976, 1977, and 2005–2011, which recorded 154 bee species and morphospecies in 30 genera. Expand
Addition to the checklist of IUCN European wild bees (Hymenoptera: Apoidea)
TLDR
The authors discuss the artificial framework of the study considered by International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) to produce the first Red List and they propose the more meaningful West Palaearctic biogeographical region. Expand
A Survey of Bees (Hymenoptera: Apoidea) of the Indiana Dunes and Northwest Indiana, USA
TLDR
Forty-nine percent of bee species known to occur in Indiana were found at these northwest Indiana sites, consistent with Indiana Dunes existing at a biogeographic crossroads where grassland and forest biomes meet in a landscape whose climate and soils are affected by proximity to Lake Michigan. Expand
A Checklist of the Bees (Hymenoptera: Apoidea) of Pennsylvania
TLDR
Of the 371 species reported here, 150 are new state records, including 27 of the 98 species found in the PDA surveys. Expand
Checklist of bees (Apoidea) from a private conservation property in west-central Montana
TLDR
This survey expands the number of bee species recorded in Montana to 366 and presents new distributional records for 34 bee species, including Megachile (Eutricharaea) apicalis Spinola, an introduced bee that was discovered to be resident in North America in 1984 in Santa Barbara County, California.
