Survey of Bombus (Hymenoptera: Apidae) and DNA barcoding ofbiome wild bees in Southeast Oregon
Harney and Malheur County, Oregon
This project will generate species and community data for bumble bees throughout the high desert in Southeast Oregon where historical community baselines have not been established and contemporary species occurrence data is sparse. Species of wild, unmanaged bees from the sagebrush biome will be DNA barcoded to enhance available reference material for the Oregon Bee Project partners and generate species occurrence data for these specialized pollinators.
