Attribute NameValues
  • This key to the bee genera of the Pacific Northwest provides dichotomous couplets which aid the user in identifying 60 genera of bees which occur or may occur in the region. The key architecture is based strongly on the key to the genera of North and Central America published in McGinley, Michener, and Danforth (1994). Stephen, Bohart, and Torchio (1969) provided the first key to bee genera in the Pacific Northwest. Despite numerous taxonomic revisions, identification tools for the region have not been updated in more than 50 years.
