Scholars' Hub @ Home: Biodiversity: A Tale of Four Bees

20 May 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm

Biodiversity: a tale of four bees

Earth’s systems are complex and dynamic due to biodiversity, the variety of life on our planet. In particular, flowering plants are critical to climate stability, the water cycle, and the provision of oxygen, food, fibre, and material for shelter. In order for flowering plants to reproduce effectively, we need pollinators.

Join the Executive Committee from the Centre for Bee Ecology, Evolution and Conservation on World Bee Day as they discuss the most important pollinators on the planet!
