New paper on functional ecology of urban wild bees

Functional ecology of wild bees in cities: towards a better understanding of trait-urbanization relationships“ has been published in Biodiversity and Conservation.

In this paper, we summarize the published literature in the growing field of wild bee functional ecology and review which functional trait-based analyses have been carried out on wild bees in cities thus far, summarize which wild bee species traits have been considered and evaluate any consistent wild bee trait–environment relationships across studies.
