      Chats in the Stacks: Bryan Danforth on The Solitary Bees: Biology, Evolution, Conservation

      While we often associate bees with hives, the vast majority of bee species actually live solitary lives, explains Bryan Danforth, professor and chair of the Department of Entomology. In a Chats in the Stacks talk, Danforth will discuss The Solitary Bees: Biology, Evolution, Conservation (Princeton University Press, 2019), a book he wrote with Robert L. Minckley and John L. Neff.

      While giving an overview of the astounding diversity of the solitary bee species, the book weaves together scientific discoveries with descriptions of complex and fascinating bee behaviors. The Solitary Bees also highlights the plight of these crop pollinators threatened by habitat loss, pesticides, pathogens, parasites, invasive species, and climate change.

      This book talk is supported by the Mary A. Morrison Public Education Fund for Mann Library. Light refreshments will be served.
