NHMU Lecture: “Diana Cox-Foster, Bees, Essential Keystones Supporting Our Food: Are They in Danger?”

Pollinated crops feed millions of people by providing the world its fruit, vegetables, seeds, nuts, and oils. But pollinators, such as bees, have been dying off at an unprecedented rate. In our delicate food ecosystem, this loss can have devastating effects. An expert on honey bees, bumble bees, blue orchard bees, and alfalfa leaf-cutting bees, Dr. Diana Cox-Foster has pioneered research on pollinators and their vital role in our food system.

Join Dr. Cox-Foster, Research Leader and Research Entomologist at Utah State University, as she illuminates the work being done to understand and solve pollination management issues in the United States and around the world.
