Bee Pollinator 2021

Laura Jones is Helping Farmers Protect Pollinators | Student Spotlights

Increasing ambient temperature is a major stressor to bees and a potential driver of pollinator decline. The video features the research done by an Entomology doctoral student Laura Jones, who is investigating the impact of environmental warming on bee pollinators. The IEE-funded collaborative project is under the leadership of Dr. Margarita Lopez-Uribe (https://lopezuribelab.com/). METEO Professor Jose D. Fuentes is collaborating with the Entomology team to investigate how microclimatic temperature variations impact thermal tolerance in bees. The team is currently manufacturing devices to do thermal tolerance assays of bees that will inform about the resilience of pollinators to climate change.
