We are delighted to introduce you with Bombus interacti!
This enchanting Definitions of the Arctic vary according to environmental, geographical, political, cultural and scientific perspectives. Some scientists define the Arctic as areas having a high latitude, long winters, short, cool summers,... More species of bumblebee was discovered by our TA User Group ARCTOSTRESS during their INTERACT Transnational Access supported visit to the Toolik Field Station in Alaska. The group is led by Baptiste Martinet and Pierre Rasmont from the University of Mons in Belgium.
A journal article on the discovery of the species was recently published in the Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society (DOI 10.1093/zoolinnean/zlz041).
