Bumble bees and honey bees in the Himalayas
In collaboration with Prof Jharna Chakravorty from Rajiv Gandhi University (Arunachal Pradesh) and colleagues from Germany and Austria we are mapping bumble bee species in Arunachal Pradesh. So far, we collected and documented the collection location of 636 specimen from 19 species. The specimen are deposited at the NCBS collection facility. Our collection is unique worldwide. We are currently preparing a manuscript on this collection.
