The Secret Lives of Desert-Dwelling Bees
by Dr. Hollis Woodard, Ph.D.
The deserts of the American Southwest are home to some of the most unusual and diverse bee species in the world, including many floral specialists that are found nowhere else on earth. Many of these species have unique adaptations to desert life and have co-evolved with the plants they visit for food resources. This presentation will highlight the unique biology of some of the more charismatic bee species that are found in the deserts around Twentynine Palms, including where and how they make their nests, what they use for food resources, and other special aspects of their biology. Join Dr. Hollis Woodard, Ph.D. on this evening presentation.
