They are large (up to 3 cm), fast-flying bees, distinguished from the closely related genus Epicharis by the absence of long, whip-like setae that project backwards from just behind the eyes. They are commonly encountered bees in American deserts, and are active at very high ambient temperatures when many other species are in hiding. They can often be seen in large numbers on desert-willow (Chilopsis) and palo verde (Parkinsonia) blossoms. Bees of this genus are of some economical significance in pollinating crops such as Brazil Nut (Bertholletia excelsa) and Cashew (Anacardium occidentale, pollinated by C. tarsata among others).
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]
Collaboration is of the utmost importance at Centris. It takes shape with our team, with our real estate clients, and with our valued partners from Québec and elsewhere, with whom we design approximately 50% of our tools. We encourage the pooling of talent to develop innovative solutions for real estate professionals and adapt tools based on a particular geographical context. At Centris, we see big and we see far: partnerships are essential to our progress.

Le patrimoine architectural de Québec comprend l'ensemble des bâtiments de l'Assemblée nationale qui ont été érigés sur la colline Parlementaire à partir de 1877. On y retrouve deux styles architecturaux, soit le style Second Empire pour l'Hôtel du Parlement et l'architecture Beaux-Arts pour les autres édifices. La Citadelle de Québec, construite entre 1820 et 1831, le Château Frontenac, bâti entre 1892 et 1893, et la Terrasse Dufferin font également partie du site patrimonial du Vieux-Québec.
