We investigated how wood-cavity-nesting bee species richness, nesting success, as well as nesting and floral resources varied across gradients of wildfire severity and time-since-burn (Simananok and Burkle 2019). We sampled nesting bees via nesting boxes within four wildfires in southwest Montana, USA using a space-for-time substitution chronosequence approach spanning 3 to 25 years post-burn and including an unburned control. In addition we collected information on local habitat characteristics including the number of wood cavities, volume of coarse woody debris, and percent canopy cover.
