Squash bees are rapidly spreading around the world
A new study led by Penn State researchers has discovered that the squash bee (Eucera pruinosa) has evolved to thrive in response to the intensification of agriculture in North America. This new research, which is the first to show the role of agriculture as an evolutionary force acting on a wild insect pollinator, could have implications for food security.
