Native Bee Conservation in Vermont & Beyond

Friday, February 24, 2017

Leif Richardson, Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Gund Institute, UVM Vermont has more than 250 species of native bees, many of which are important pollinators of wild and cultivated plants. These wild bee species may be threatened by land use change, pesticides, disease, climate change, and competition with honey bees. Leif will discuss how we know when insect species are of conservation concern, and recent efforts to protect declining bee pollinators in Vermont and beyond.
