    About This Project

    The leafcutting bee plays a critical role in our society by pollinating wild and cultivated plants and supporting production of seeds, fruits, and vegetables. Synchronization of flower bloom and bee emergence is critical; bees need nectar and plants need pollination. Climate change is increasing climate variability, impacting rhythms of natural events. When Mother Nature gives mixed signals, we aim to understand how bees keep time, using specially engineered clocks!
