Abstract
  • Urban gardens are uniquely positioned to support bee conservation. Gardens, when managed for pollinators, can provide food sources (pollen and nectar), nesting sites, and mating sites. Some bees (like sweat bees in the family Halictidae), are known to thrive in urban areas, we wanted to understand what types of bees are present in urban gardens, specifically. To answer this question, we reviewed 28 studies of bees in urban gardens spanning 5 decades and 14 countries. For each bee species reported, we identified 4 of their traits: sociality, nesting substrate, diet breadth, and native status.
  • In cooperation with 10-Minute University, and funded by the Clackamas County Master Gardener Association, these briefs will help you translate research findings into sustainable gardening practices.
