  • More than 700 species of bee co-exist in the Sonoran Desert region. Tony Paniagua speaks to three members of The Tucson Bee Collaborative - Jennifer Katcher, a biology professor at Pima Community College; Katie Stout, a University of Arizona undergraduate; and Wendy Moore, an associate professor with the University of Arizona’s department of entomology - about how they are working to increase awareness of this diversity, and introduce local students to new research opportunities.
