2016 Native Bees of the Siskiyous: Biology and Identification


Photo of female Andrena crataegus by Hartmut Wisch

Instructor: Robbin Thorp, Ph.D
Dates: Friday-Sunday, June 10-12, 2016
Location: SFI, Selma, OR
Tuition: $225


Designed for both professional entomologists and botanists and amateur naturalists, this field course will introduce you to the bioregion’s native bees, teach you to identify species in the field and lab, and provide fascinating insights into bee social structure and behavior. They serve an essential role in native plant reproduction, but did you know native bees also show potential as crop pollinators? Dr. Thorp will provide an overview during a Friday evening lecture. In lab sessions we’ll discuss native bee lifestyles, morphology, classification, and study how to key out common genera. Field trips will give us opportunities to observe and collect species as they browse spring wildflowers. We’ll also learn how to locate their nests in the field.

Maximum capacity of this class is 15 students so we encourage you to register early.
