Colorado’s Wild Bees: The Fascinating Ecologies of our Most Important Pollinators for Pollinator Appreciation Month
Wild bees have captured the attention of scientists and citizens alike. Join Dr. Adrian Carper as he discusses the impressive diversity of Colorado’s wild bees and explores their fascinating natural histories and ecologies. With one of the most diverse bee faunas in the US, Colorado has a long history of research on wild bee ecology, evolution, and diversity. Dr. Carper will review some of the history of Colorado bee research, and summarize the CU Museum’s research efforts to understand how humans impact wild bees, and how ecology can help inform wild bee conservation.
