Bees have been collected at 24 sites chosen to represent the diversity of urban and natural habitats in the Chicago metropolitan area. It was discovered that areas of preserved natural habitat yielded 44 species, in 20 genres, and 6 families. Twenty species were common to both urban areas and areas of preserved natural habitat.
Areas of preserved natural habitat (which indicates Chicagoland’s vast suburban area) harbored a higher richness of species, and the species most often collected in these areas were native to North America. Over time, a progressively larger fraction of the world’s biological communities experience some degree of urbanization.
That’s a lot of bee-speak for this spot!
