Bee population escalated post last ice age, reveals study!

According to the study conducted by experts from Flinders University of South Australia, the Australian small carpenter bee -- found in sub-tropical, coastal and desert areas in Australia --has flourished in the period of global warming following the last Ice Age some 18,000 years ago.
