In this FREE event, Dr. Carril explores the relationships between native solitary bees and the flowering plants on which they depend –and which depend on them.
There are over 1,000 native bee species in the state of Arizona. Ranging from the size of an eyelash to larger than a thumb, these beautiful and intriguing creatures are responsible for the majority of pollination that happens in wild landscapes, urban gardens, and agricultural fields. Though the relationship between bees and flowers seems elegant, and is essential to the functioning of any ecosystem, it is fraught with all the intricacies and manipulations of a Shakespeare play. In this talk, Dr. Carril will introduce her audience to Arizona’s native solitary bees and explore the relationships of these bees with the flowering plants on which they depend –and which depend on them.
Doors open at 6:30pm.
