What we do...

Bees have a profound impact on earth because of their key role as pollinators in natural and agricultural settings. In our lab we focus broadly on the biology and evolution of bees. We study the phylogeny of bees using molecular and morphological data, the diversity of bees on a world-wide and local scale, the population genetics of solitary bees, and the role of native bees in crop pollination.
