Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) Climate change has been recently pointed out as one of the major causes of extinction in several groups of organisms [ 2 ]. Climate change is related to an increase of frequency of extreme event such as heat waves [ 3 ] . Bumblebees are robust and hairy bees with hetero - endotherm metabolism [ 4 ] that enable them to live in some of the highest - elevation and most northern ecosystems . Which are also the hardest regions hit by climate change [ 5 ] . The goal of this study is to assess the heat resistance of different bumblebee species in field lab with a new experimental device to predict consequences of heat waves on the pollinator fauna .
