Bumble bees (Bombus) are unusually important pollinators, with approximately 260 wild species native to all biogeographic regions except Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. As they are vitally impo...

Few insects exhibit the striking color pattern radiation found in bumble bees ( Bombus ) (1, 2) and some wasps (3, 4). Bumble bees have diversified globally into an unusually wide range of color patterns, many of which converge into high-fidelity Mullerian mimetic complexes across a wide geographic range. Despite extensive documentation of color pattern diversification (1, 2, 5), including a quantitative analysis defining the 12 principal color pattern elements that comprise the phenotype array ...

Mexico and Central America are among the most biodiverse regions on Earth, harboring many species with high levels of interpopulation morphological and genetic diversity. The mountainous topography of this region contains isolated sky island habitats that have the potential to promote speciation. This has been studied in vertebrates, yet few studies have examined the phylogeographic and genetic structure of insect species encompassing this region. Here we investigate geographic patterns of genet...

Bumble bees (Bombus) provide vital services to agricultural and natural plant systems (Kremen et al. 2002; Fontaine et al. 2006). A survey across diverse North American Bombus species detected higher prevalence of infection by the microsporidian parasite Nosema bombi in declining relative to non-declining species, indicating a correlation between Nosema and Bombus population declines (Cameron et al. 2011). Although it has been shown in the laboratory that N. bombi infection is detrimental to the...

The PREDICTS project—Projecting Responses of Ecological Diversity In Changing Terrestrial Systems (www.predicts.org.uk)—has collated from published studies a large, reasonably representative database of comparable samples of biodiversity from multiple sites that differ in the nature or intensity of human impacts relating to land use. We have used this evidence base to develop global and regional statistical models of how local biodiversity responds to these measures. We describe and make freely ...

Emergent fungal diseases are critical factors in global biodiversity declines. The fungal pathogen Nosema bombi was recently found to be widespread in declining species of North American bumble bees (Bombus), with circumstantial evidence suggesting an exotic introduction from Europe. This interpretation has been hampered by a lack of knowledge of global genetic variation, geographic origin, and changing prevalence patterns of N. bombi in declining North American populations. Thus, the temporal a...

As increasingly large molecular data sets are collected for phylogenomics, the conflicting phylogenetic signal among gene trees poses challenges to resolve some difficult nodes of the Tree of Life. Among these nodes, the phylogenetic position of the honey bees (Apini) within the corbiculate bee group remains controversial, despite its considerable importance for understanding the emergence and maintenance of eusociality. Here, we show that this controversy stems in part from pervasive phylogenet...

A dataset of 3,250,404 measurements, collated from 26,114 sampling locations in 94 countries and representing 47,044 species. The data were collated from 480 existing spatial comparisons of local-scale biodiversity exposed to different intensities and types of anthropogenic pressures, from terrestrial sites around the world. The database was assembled as part of the PREDICTS project - Projecting Responses of Ecological Diversity In Changing Terrestrial Systems; [www.predicts.org.uk](http://www.p...
