Data from: Linking pollen foraging of megachilid bees to their nest bacterial microbiota

Anna Voulgari-Kokota, Markus Ankenbrand, Gudrun Grimmer, Ingolf Steffan-Dewenter & Alexander Keller
Solitary bees build their nests by modifying the interior of natural cavities and they provision them with food by importing collected pollen. As a result, the microbiota of the solitary bee nests may be highly dependent on introduced materials. In order to investigate how the collected pollen is associated with the nest microbiota, we used metabarcoding of the ITS2 rDNA and the 16S rDNA to simultaneously characterize the pollen composition and the bacterial communities of...
