Specimen records for wild bees visiting Northern Highbush Blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum) and European Raspberry (Rubus idaeus)on farms in the Champlain Valley of Vermont, USA. Collected by Charlie Nicholson and others between 2013 and 2017. Determined primarily by Jason Gibbs and Tom Wood.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 4,379 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
