Monday, March 2nd, 2015 - Nate Pope, Hollis Woodard, Sarah Cusser, and Kim Ballare (of the Jha Lab) discuss native bee life history and conservation


Shalene Jha’s research group at UT-Austin conducts research on plant and pollinator landscape ecology, plant and pollinator population genetics and disease ecology, and how land use impacts critical ecological processes for native plants and their pollinators. Postdoctoral researcher Hollis Woodard and PhD students Nate Pope, Sarah Cusser, and Kim Ballare joined us to talk about native bee natural history, the evolution of sociality in bees, pollination ecology, and how agricultural development and urban landscapes affect native bee populations. Tune in to learn about how important and amazing native bees are!
