Latitudinal variation in body size, over-wintering emergence time and weight loss during development in the alkali bee, Nomia melanderi Cockerell, were studied in individuals from 24 populations in the western United States when reared under controlled laboratory conditions. Individuals from northern latitude sites were significantly heavier and took less time to develop to adults, but lost comparable weight during the developmental process.
