Canadian student finds 19 new bee species

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.

Its definitely news to hear a positive article about bees. Wit this information then they can see which ones are being reproduced, perhaps in greater numbers than others and perhaps we can focus more on these 'if' the mass destruction of the bees is not natural. I don't believe it is caused naturally yet with a lot of animals having massive die outs lately I wonder.
