Australia has more than 1,650 native bee species, and they rely on native plants, even if some have more flexible diets than others.

“These little animals have a lot to offer us in terms of how we understand the world, in addition to being vital parts of the ecosystem. And importantly, they are our responsibility to understand and protect,” says Flinders University PhD Dr James Dorey.
