Friday 22 November, 7.00pm-8.00pm. Newcastle University – Ridley Building 2, room RIDB2.1.65

With Ellen Moss

“Bee declines” have been a media hot topic for several years now, but most of the coverage focuses on just one species: honeybees. The UK has around 250 species of native wild bees and many hundreds of species of flies, wasps, butterflies, and moths, all of which act as vital pollinators of our native plants and crops. Ellen’s research looks at how climate change affects this wider community of pollinating insects and wildflowers, and what the consequences could be for humans and society.

Ellen is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Newcastle, working on pollinators.
