Oregon Bee Atlas: Wild bee findings from 2019
AbstractThe Oregon Bee Atlas is a new volunteer-led effort to characterize the bee fauna of Oregon State by collecting, preparing and databasing specimens of wild bee species and their plant host records. In 2019 volunteers submitted 25,022 bee specimens across all Oregon counties, representing 224 unique bee species and 45 unique bee genera. Specimens were collected from a total of 352 unique flowering plant genera, resulting in the largest contemporary state-level database of bee-host plant interactions. Volunteers produced valuable occurrence records for species poorly known for the state, and species of conservation concern. The 2019 data builds on the efforts of 2018 in demonstrating the power of a specimen-focused, volunteer wild bee survey.
