About the Webinar
Poor nutrition is one of the major factors attributed to honey bee colony declines reported over the past fifteen years. Habitat loss, intensive agriculture, monocultures and changes in plant flowering phenology are most likely contributors to poor nutrition. Nutrition plays a vital role in mitigating effects of these stressors on bees. Currently, there is huge gap in knowledge pertaining to bee nutrition. So, it is necessary to understand honey bee nutrition holistically. This webinar will focus on (a) nutritional challenges facing honey bees during crop pollination (b) efforts to understand nutritional requirements of honey bees and (c) strategies to improve bee nutrition.
