A Canadian doctoral student has identified 19 new species of bees, including one in downtown Toronto close to his research lab, researchers say.
Jason Gibbs of York University completed a study of 84 species of sweat bees -- so called for their attraction to human perspiration -- and found 19 varieties never identified or described before, a university release said Tuesday.
Gibbs' extensive study will help scientists track bee diversity, understand pollination biology and study the evolution of social behavior in insects, scientists say.
