The Buzz About Bees: How They Improve Our Lives

By Dr. Shalene Jha
Assistant Professor, Integrative Biology
The University of Texas at Austin

Bees are one of the hardest working insects on the planet. Many of the more than 20,000 bee species in the world are key to the pollination of hundreds of billions of dollars' worth of crops including coffee, cotton, blueberries, and almonds! But many bee species are being threatened by human-related activities such as agricultural intensification, natural habitat alteration, and climate change. Join Dr. Shalene Jha as she discusses her research on bee populations and shares the secrets of their amazing world. Registration will open in early April.
