  1. Provide artificial nest sites for solitary bees

    Morato & Campos (2000) recorded 14 species of solitary bee using drilled wooden nest boxes in continuous tropical forest and inside and between forest fragments in Amazonas, Brazil. At least 108 nest boxes, each with two holes, were placed at each site. The nest boxes were more frequently occupied in continuous forest (23-29 nests/site) and natural gaps in continuous forest (78 nests/site) than in between forest fragments in pastureland or secondary vegetation (6-23 nests/site).
