Re: [beemonitoring] Quantifying Soil/Bee associations [1 Attachment]
I just finished up my masters and my thesis work was on O. cornifrons.
I am working on getting that all published at this time. One article
is being reviewed for Psyche right now, and the other will be sent out
in a couple weeks.
Sam, sorry to get your post slightly off topic! I am very interested
in how soil parameters affect bee community structure. I think its an
understudied factor affecting bee diversity. The topic is, along with
questions about some other habitat parameters, one of the components
of my dissertation (which I am currently writing a proposal for). If I
manage to dig up any good papers on previous studies I will share them
