Host-plant coevolution and the diversity of bees in relation to the flora of North America

Host-plant coevolution and the diversity of bees in relation to the flora of North America

Phytologia 43(4): 357-419

The preliminary results presented here are based on published literature and museum specimens. Excluding the tundra regions, the areas with the most bee species (890 in the Chihuahuan and Sonoran deserts) have only 3 times as many species as the areas with fewest species (280 in the southern mixed forest).
