UC Davis-Affiliated Wild Bee Decline Study Released

The new study suggests that wild bee populations likely declined in areas comprising 23 percent of the nation between 2008 and 2013, a decline associated with conversion of natural wild bee habitat into intensive agriculture.

The paper, titled “Modeling the Status, Trends and Impacts of Wild Bee Abundance in the United States,” is published today in the Proceedings of the Natural Academy of Sciences.
