Oct. 30, 2018 | Bees: Importance and Diversity
Laurence Packer (Professor, Department of Biology, Faculty of Science)

In this talk Professor Packer will debunk some myths about bees, describe the remarkable diversity of bees in terms of their diversity of form, ecology and behaviour. Packer will also outline why bees are important, not only for pollination of our crops but also because of their potential for monitoring the state of the environment. Packer will outline two Canadian-led initiatives that aim to make bees easier for people worldwide to identify and study them. Lastly, Packer will outline what we can all do to assist with the conservation of bee populations.

This unique partnership is part of York University’s goals for community engagement and reputation-building, with a unique collaboration that invites alumni, students and their families, and the public to engage in meaningful talks and discussions.
