I am interested in native bee populations as they relate to natural and agricultural lands. I want to better understand plant and bee community interactions and how to best manage multifunctional landscapes.
I am working with the National Park Service to understand the influence of invasive plant management, specifically buckthorn removal, on wild pollinator populations.
