Abstract

The article shows the structure of topical complexes of bumblebees in the lower reaches of the Northern Dvina River. Five geographical landscapes depending on the nature of vegetation and manmade transformation of the landscape have been singled out; factors conditioning the bumblebee species composition and dominance of some species in certain habitats have been studied. The article discusses the impact of human activities on faunogenesis of bumblebees and the effect of differential human impact on certain bumblebee species.

Keywords
