Solitary bee research comes to Dufferin Grove Park

Last summer, Dufferin Grove Park began participating in a research monitoring study carried out by Scott MacIvor, a PhD Student at York University. The four-year project will examine the effects of urban land use and complexity on the diversity and foraging of wild, cavity-nesting solitary bees. The principle objective is to better integrating biodiversity-ecosystem function relationships into all scales of city planning and design initiatives.

Over 200 sites all over Toronto are participating, and these include public and private gardens, parks, green roofs, and semi-naturalized areas.
