With more than 2 million square kilometers, the Brazilian cerrado region - which covers the midwestern, northern and northeastern states - is the refuge of 35% of the bees that live in tropical zones on the planet. The survey is part of a study carried out by researchers from the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation.

The cerrado, a vast tropical savannah ecoregion, is recognized as the richest savannah in the world in terms of biological diversity. However, it is one of the biomes that suffer most from changes caused by human occupation.
