Centris pallida are able to withstand very high internal temperatures when compared to other bees. Males regularly have thoracic temperatures of 48 to 49 degrees Celsius (118.4 to 120.2 degrees Fahrenheit). If the thoracic temperature reaches 51 to 52 degrees Celsius (123.8 to 125.6 degrees Fahrenheit), the bee will become paralyzed and die. Most of the cooling occurs when heat radiates off the abdomen. To prevent overheating, C. pallida have a very high thoracic conductance (rate of heat transfer from the thorax to the abdomen) which is 45 percent higher than that of sphinx moths of the same size. Other than this high thoracic conductance, no other mechanism has been found to help the bee reduce its internal temperature. C. pallida do not appear to have evaporative cooling in the wild as honey bees and bumblebees do.[10]

The genus Centris contains circa 250 species of large apid bees occurring in the Neotropical and Nearctic regions, from Kansas to Argentina. Most females of these bees possess adaptations for carrying floral oils rather than (or in addition to) pollen or nectar. They visit mainly plants of the family Malpighiaceae to collect oil, but also Plantaginaceae, Calceolariaceae, Krameriaceae and others. Recent studies have shown they are sister to the corbiculate bees, the most well-known and economically important group of bees [1]

Ceux qui préfèrent un environnement tranquille se plairont à Québec. On peut trouver un parc à une certaine distance de la majorité des maisons et les résidents peuvent compter sur la présence de quelques centaines d'espaces verts publics, comme par exemple la Base de plein air de Sainte-Foy et le Parc des Champs-de-Bataille, ce qui fait qu'ils sont faciles d'accès. La ville plaira également à ceux qui préfèrent les environnements silencieux, étant donné qu'il y a peu de bruit lié à la circulation automobile - même si plusieurs secteurs de la ville sont plus bruyants, comme par exemple près de l'une des 3 voies ferrées, de l'Autoroute Félix-Leclerc, de l'Autoroute Henri-IV ou de l'aéroport (YQB).  Quebec - Lire davantage à propos des propriétés à vendre dans cette région
