33Re: [beemonitoring] Common Bees of Washington D.C. - And a call for similar lists
- Dec 19, 2006Sam:
If you don't find a better place to post it, I could post the common
bees of Washington, DC list as a separate web page on my own web
site, which includes my ongoing list of bees from my field station
It would be best, however, to have it as part of a broader
compilation, if anyone has one or is working on one.
