Facts About Native Bees in Australia

Katja Hogendoorn, from the University of Adelaide, discuses native bees in Australia and their importance for our natural environment.

Native bees have co-evolved with native plants for millions of years in Australia. There is a huge range of native plants that rely on native bees for pollination. The introduced honeybee is not able to pollinate these plants.
