Common Native Bees in Gardens of California
By Jaime Pawelek and Jennifer Foltz Sweat
Urban Bee Lab, University of California Berkeley
This is a wonderful little flip book for identifying common bees found in California Gardens and some of their favorite flowers. The pictures are great and the information is concise and very helpful to those of us observing with a camera, and without a science background. Funding for the guide was provided in part by the Hind Foundation, NRCS-USDA, University of California Agriculture and Natural Resources, and Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund.

Dorchin A, López-Uribe MM, Praz CJ, Griswold T, Danforth BN. 2018. Phylogeny, new generic-level classification, and historical biogeography of the Eucera complex (Hymenoptera: Apidae). Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution 119: 81-92.

Highlights
•A phylogeny based on 6 genes and morphology is presented for a large complex of eucerine bees.

•A new generic-level classification is proposed for this systematically complex group of pollinators.

•The evolution of morphological traits is analyzed relative to the molecular phylogeny.

The Bees in Your Backyard: A Guide to North America's Bees.
By Joseph S. Wilson & Olivia J. Messinger Carril
Princeton University Press, 2015
A wonderfully written, richly and attractively illustrated book, mostly with the authors' own excellent images!
This is a wonderful introduction to North America's over 4000 native bee species. The title page's photos communicate at once the great diversity of our bee fauna.
A MUST for everyone who wants to learn about the bees that have evolved with our flora, as well as a useful reference for professionals.
