The Penn State Center for Pollinator Researchis world-renowned and hosted the Third International Conference on Pollimator Biology, Health and Policy in 2016. The following are two among many of their research projects:
LANDSCAPES FOR BEES: MANAGING BEES IN A CHANGING WORLD: This study will utilize data provided by collaborating beekeepers to evaluate how Land Use, Forage Quality and Microclimate impact Colony Health and Survival. The Conclusions of the Study will in turn inform land managers, growers and beekeepers about how to find and create optimum resources for bees. We have been in contact with Tyler Jones and are xcited about participating in this research project!
Bee Friendly PA is a new initiative from the Pennsylvania State Beekeeping Association (PSBA) that recognizes bee-friendly communities across the state: those that encourage beekeeping as well provide hospitable habitats and pollinator-friendly pest management practices.
Rachel Carson concluded Silent Spring by writing that “the control of nature is a phrase conceived in arrogance born of the Neanderthal age of biology and philosophy, when it was supposed that nature exists for the convenience of man.”
