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).
Centris pallida is a species of solitary bee native to North America. It lacks an accepted common name; however, it has been called the digger bee, the desert bee, and the pallid bee due to its actions, habitat, and color respectively. The solitary nature of this bee allows for a dual-strategy mating system which produces an evolutionarily stable state resistant to invading strategies. These bees have also evolved to withstand the high temperatures of their native habitat. C. pallida routinely has internal temperatures within 3 degrees Celsius of death.

Larger females are able to better control the size of their offspring. As stated in the Life Cycle section, more bee bread leads to larger offspring. Larger females are able to gather more pollen and nectar in a shorter amount of time when compared to smaller females. This means that during rich conditions, the larger females can have larger offspring with greater fitness, or if conditions are poor, the females can simply choose to have smaller offspring. There is a lower limit to how small offspring can be, and thus, smaller females can’t make this reduction or increase in size in response to the environment. Smaller females are still able to exist since larger females can’t take advantage of having larger offspring when the density of nesting grounds is low.[12] To put it another way, larger male offspring are less effective in low density nesting grounds since they don’t have as many opportunities to use their size to fight off other males; thus, in low density nesting grounds, small and large males have similar fitness which means that the extra bee bread which the larger male received served no purpose. Smaller males actually do better in low density areas because they don’t have to fight with larger males as much, and by extension, expend less energy. This lack of a reason to produce larger offspring reduces the fitness of the larger females since they have to dig larger tunnels to fit in, but still produce the same size offspring as smaller females.[12]
The process of integrating the province’s various Centris databases began approximately five years ago and was completed in June 2008. All transactions concluded through a real estate broker who is a member of a real estate board are added to the new provincial database. The Québec Federation of Real Estate Boards (QFREB) uses this database to publish press releases and other publications on market conditions, including the Centris Barometer – Residential Market, which provides an overview of key performance indicators associated with the resale market (i.e., sales, new listings, median prices, number of days on the market, etc.). These indicators are calculated according to consistent, stringent rules so that statistics can be comparable across geographic areas.

Le succès du plus important réseau immobilier du monde4 repose sur deux qualités essentielles: l'expertise et l'efficacité. Pour développer ces qualités fondamentales, RE/MAX a créé le Collège d'enseignement en immobilier (C.E.I.) et RE/MAX International a ouvert l'université RE/MAX à Denver au Colorado. Dans ces institutions, les courtiers reçoivent une formation enrichie qui leur permet de vous assister pendant l'acquisition de votre maison à Laval.
