Summary in English
A total of 156 bees representing 25 genera from six families are recognized in Maritime Canada. Three are introduced species (Apis mellifera, Megachile rotundata, Osmia lignaria propinqua) with the remainder being indigenous to the region. Of the indigenous bees, 128 species are pollinators and 25 are parasitic. This paper serves as the first inclusive summary of bees from agricultural and natural settings in the Maritimes and establishes an inventory to which new species records can be added and the status of current species can be monitored.
