Forward to the north: two Euro-Mediterranean bumblebee species now cross the Arctic Circle

Abstract : In recent decades, several animal and plant species have been in regression (population size decrease and geographical distribution shrinking). This loss of biodiversity can be due to various factors such as the destruction and fragmentation of habitat, urban development, pesticides or climate change. However, some species benefit from these changes and expand their distribution. Here we report observations (in 2013 and 2014) of two Euro-Mediterranean bumblebee species: Bombus terrestris for the first time and Bombus lapidarius, north of the Arctic Circle in Fennoscandia.
