Bee Nesting Ecology and Conservation - online

Submitted by Mike Fox on

There are over 20,000 species of bee worldwide, each with its own unique behaviours, life cycles and lifestyles. The nesting ecology of bees varies between different families, with some species living underground in the soil, whilst others excavate their nests in deadwood. Several species prefer to make their nests inside the empty cavities left by other animals and there are even some bees that nest in abandoned snail shells!

Please note that this course is NOT a species identification course and will only go as far as categorising British bees by their life nesting behaviours.
