    About This Project

    We rely on bees to pollinate plants critical for our survival, but viruses threaten these key pollinators. Bees infected with viruses experience devastating effects, including deformities and larval mortality. Our project will look at the influence of bee biodiversity and species interactions on the prevalence and distribution of four viruses in wild bee communities. By expanding our understanding of how bee viruses spread, this project can provide insight into conservation strategies.
