2016 International Conference on Pollinator Biology, Health and Policy
July 18, 2016 @ 8:00 am - July 20, 2016 @ 5:00 pm
The Center for Pollinator Research at Penn State University will be hosting the third International Conference on Pollinator Biology, Health and Policy from July 18-20, 2016. The conference will be held at Penn State’s campus in University Park, PA.
A major theme of this year’s conference will be translating the results of recent research advances in the biology and health of pollinators into solutions that can be applied in the field to conserve and expand pollinator populations. The conference will cover a range of topics in pollinator research, from genomics to ecology, and their application to land use and management, breeding of managed bees, and monitoring of global pollinator populations. Recent global initiatives in policy, education, and extension will also be highlighted.
For more information about the conference, please email Kim Swistock, or the conference organizers, Christina Grozinger (Penn State), Shelby Fleischer (Penn State), Neal Williams (UC Davis) and Rufus Isaacs (Michigan State University).
