Abstract

Over 40 species of solitary bees occur in interior and arctic Alaska. They are most diverse and abundant in open treeless habitats, especially in steppe on south-facing bluffs and early successional sites along large rivers. Solitary bees visit a large variety of plants for nectar and pollen and are important pollinators of many of these plants. There is a strong positive relationship between the length of a bee species' proboscis and the length of the corolla tube of the flower species it visits for nectar.
