Tracking Native Bee Movement

Check out this article in the Berkeley Science Review, called Flight of the Sunflower Bee, that I wrote about my research on sunflower pollination by native bees. I dyed bees with fluorescent powder to track their movements throughout fields to see if habitat enhancements on field margins enhances crop seed set. If you’ve ever wondered about my work, or what a day in the life of a field entomologist is like, then take a look.
