Global Distribution Map for Bees Published

Scientists have created the first global distribution map for bees, reports Yale Environment 360, and published the work in the journal Cell Biology. The analysis of nearly six million public records revealed that bee diversity is greater in the Northern Hemisphere than in the Southern, and that there are more bees in temperate regions than in the tropics. The United States has the most species of bees. The scientists say their work can help protect bee species and promote food security.
