Solitary Bees: Identification and Ecology (FSC)

This intermediate residential course (led by Ian Cheeseborough) will introduce participants to the identification and ecology of solitary bees including nesting and foraging requirements, hosts and associated aculeate nest parasites. Introduction to the identification of genera and species will be through a combination of presentations, field visits and microscope workshops using keys and prepared specimens. By the end of the course participants should be more confident in identifying the more commonly encountered families and genera.
