    About This Project

    Pollinators are vital to the maintenance of life. They assist flowering plants (including most human food crops) to reproduce. This ecosystem service, pollination, is at risk worldwide because pollinators are declining. This is a particular problem in cities where honey bees are the dominant pollinators. We want to find out how honey bees respond to the pressures of life in cities by developing a new method of testing worker health.
