Honeybees, this is the bee that we all know, they give us honey, they are raised commercially, and we can point at the hives; to some people it seems to be the only bee in existence. But, as you know, there’s so much more, but so little information in the air about the other 4000 species on the continent. So, it turns out, that the best way to think about wild bees is to start with the premise that everything about honeybees is different in that everything about wild bees will be something new and those patterns in natural history will be both different from honeybees, but complex and varied across the pantheon of all wild bees and their thousands of years of evolution with plants.
