Abstract: A modern, quantitative synthesis on bee distribution and its drivers at a global scale. Orr et al. show that bees exhibit a rare bimodal pattern of higher species richness at mid-latitudes, based on their great success in xeric and some temperate areas, further supported by a driver analysis. Bee species richness is also reprojected worldwide.
