USDA-ARS-BBSL

Bee Biology and Systematics Laboratory, USDA-ARS Pollinating Insect-Biology, Management, Systematics Research

This is a one-time snapshot collection of data originally hosted by GBIF: http://www.gbif.org/publisher/1e26a630-7203-11dc-a0d8-b8a03c50a862

Temporal range: August 7, 1819 - August 25, 2012

Publication date November 26, 2019

The Pollinating Insects -- Biology, Management and Systematics Research Unit (PIRU) was founded in the late 1940s as part of the alfalfa seed production unit. We focus primarily on pollination research with bees.The mission of the Pollinating Insect - Biology, Management and Systematics Research Unit is the development of non-Apis bees, for example the alfalfa leafcutting bee and blue orchard bee, as crop pollinators. Research emphasis areas include the development and improvement of management systems for bee populations, biological studies of bees, plant-pollination systems, and bee biosystematics. Cross-pollinated crops not effectively pollinated by honey bees have been targeted for improved pollination management, and the candidacy of selected pollinator species continues to be evaluated. Current research on established species, like the alfalfa leafcutting bee and blue orchard bee, is directed toward developing control programs for pests and diseases, improving management that will result in better bee health and demonstrating pollination efficacy and increased producer profitability on "new" crops.

AMNH-BEE

Collaborative databasing of North American bee collections within a global informatics network project

Data in this collection are from the Collaborative databasing of North American bee collections within a global informatics network project. Data was originally captured using Arthropod Easy Capture software developed at the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH), New York. Project lead investigators are John Ascher (Principal Investigator) and Jerome Rozen (Co-Principal Investigator) at the AMNH, and Douglas Yanega (Principal Investigator), University of California Riverside.

UCSB-IZC

University of California Santa Barbara Invertebrate Zoology Collection

The UC Santa Barbara Invertebrate Zoology collection began in 2016 when Cheadle Center Director, Katja Seltmann started at UCSB. The majority of the specimens are recent (since 2016) but many from the 1950s are included in an entomology teaching collection that was at UCSB during this time. In 1960, Dr. Adrian Wenner arrived at UCSB and added a small personal collection of families not represented in the collection. The collection continues to grow through voluntary donations of arthropods collected by students for class projects, accessions from the UCSB Natural Reserve System, and research projects at UCSB and the Cheadle Center Ecological Restoration. The majority of the specimens are insects from UC Santa Barbara and the surrounding area and the collection strength is in Hymenoptera. This collection is a snapshot of an external collection database where only the Bee (Apoidea:Anthophila) records are included. All data and images in this collection are under CC0 1.0 (Public-domain) license.
