Table of results
While having one of the lowest total number of bees captured, this refuge's fields were quite species rich. Note that most species were detected with only 1 or 2 individuals, indicating that there are likely to be many more species on the refuge that were not detected. No particular species stands out; despite the northern latitude, all these species could be found in the southern part of the region. The relatively large number of the nest parasite Sphecodes is interesting. We have a difficult time determining species in this group but all appeared to be the same species and will be sent off to have their DNA squeezed.
