Presentation: Sustaining pollinator populations by improving nutritive options for bees
Dr. Seshadri will focus on plant-pollinator interactions specifically the intricate connection with bees and plants that they forage on to feed their young. She will talk about some of the recent publications that demonstrate the importance of pollen, describe findings on pollen composition and talk about some of the ways by which each of us can contribute towards better nutrition for bees. She may touch on some colony management as related to nutrition too.
