dc.description.abstract "New data on nesting behavior and ecology of the Exomalopsini are presented. The information is incorporated with previously published accounts to provide an overview of the nesting biology of this New World tribe throughout its geographic range. The account treats 23 species in seven genera. The specific subjects are: choice of nesting site, social organization, nest structure, provisioning, development, defecation, cocoon spinning, and cuckoo bee associations. A formal synoptic overview of the biological features of the tribe is presented. The evolutionary relationships of the Exomalopsini with other anthophorine taxa are briefly discussed, as are relationships of the tribe with the cleptoparasitic subfamily Nomadinae"--P. 2. en_US
