Deforestation is one of the main reasons for the extinction of some species.

Only six bees of this species were found during the investigation, and the last published record of this species belongs to Australia. Phyrohyllus lactiferous, Dates 1923, and Queensland.

“This is because it is the only Australian species in the genus Frohilaeus and nothing is known about its biology,” the researcher said. University of Flinders, James Tore Published in a new science article Hymnoptera Research Journal. The search began after bee experts Olivia Davis and Dr. Tobias Smith raised the possibility of species extinction in the absence of recent views.

According to bee and plant records Atlas of Living Australia, Listing 500 species in New South Wales and 657 in Queensland, researchers at the University of Flinders sought to estimate the latest diversity, Habitat loss and fragmentation of Australia’s rainforests is linked to wildfires and climate change as they exert destructive pressure on a variety of species..

Causes of destruction

Australia has already deforested more than 40% of its forests and forests since European colonization, leaving most of it fragmented and degraded. Because of this, Habitats are very hospitable, Which may explain the rarity of this species of bee.

Australia is losing forest density, often due to fire and climate change, causing species to shrink to certain individuals. This vulnerability occurs because these species favor a limited number of plant species.

This study also warns, In general, the species are more vulnerable because they are specific flower species, a type of plant, And are found only near tropical or subtropical forests.

With this, People rarely known as Phyrohylus lactiferus are endangered and endangered (E.g., due to extreme land use or fire-like events), this article concludes.

Researchers emphasize the importance of understanding Protect these Australian speciesConfirm that s are required Increase biomonitoring and security initiatives, as well as fund the digitalisation of its collections and other initiatives, Thus the records are very feasible and the potential comparison is very rigorous.
