The Belgian Red List of bees is an assessment of the conservation status of Belgian bee species according to the IUCN guidelines for application of the international IUCN Red List criteria at regional and national levels (IUCN 2012a, b). It identifies the extinction threat to species at this geographical scale. These results can be used to implement conservation actions to improve the threat status of species. This Red List publication summarizes the results of this exercise for all recorded Belgian bees.
All bee species recorded in Belgium until the first half of 2017 have been included in this Red List. The geographical scope is nation-wide.
