Unravelling the habitat preferences of two closely related bumble bee species in Eastern Europe

Julia Geue & Henri Thomassen
Co-occurrence of closely related species is often explained through resource partitioning, where key morphological or life-history traits evolve under strong divergent selection. In bumble bees (genus Bombus), differences in tongue lengths, nest sites, and several life-history traits are the principal factors in resource partitioning. However, the buff-tailed and white-tailed bumble bee (Bombus terrestris and B. lucorum respectively) are very similar in morphology and life-history, but their ranges nevertheless partly overlap, raising the question how they...
