Our lab started measuring traits for our 2021 bee specimens! We measure the body length, intertegular distance (distance between where the wings attach to the body), and proboscis length. Daniel Lahn will be using these data for their independent project this year, and Kaysee will be incorporating these data into her dissertation. This is our first time measuring insect traits (except during a few summers at RMBL), and we’re very excited to see how these traits vary across interaction patterns and environmental gradients.
