dc.descriptionBees play a key role in pollination, the transferring of pollen between flowers which allows plants to be fertilized and produce fruit. But not all bees live in colonies and few are extensively managed by humans. Most native bee species are solitary and nest in the ground or in woody stems in the wild. In the US, more than 4000 native bee species can be found. But are these pollinators in danger? Dr. Jha shares how native bee species interact with native and exotic plants, from tropical forests to urban areas in Texas, reveals their cultural and economic impact, and discusses the challenges bees face to survive.en_US
