Abstract

Gardens can provide forage and habitat to a diverse and abundant assemblage of garden bees. Although the garden bee assemblage has been described in several U.S. cities, a comprehensive accounting of Portland area garden bees has yet to be published. Each summer, from 2017-2019, we collected garden bees from 25 Portland area gardens using a combination of pan traps and hand-collection. With our 2017 and 2018 bees identified, we have collected 65 species or morphospecies. In this poster, we consider the ecological characteristics of these garden bees in the context of the resources that gardens may or may not provision for various native bee species.
