The lab has four main foci: molecular phylogeny, comparative genomics, behavioural ecology, and pollinator health. We employ these four levels of biological integration to study social insects and wild pollinators at multiple evolutionary scales.
Winter Moisture Observational Study
Using data from hive monitoring systems the study aims to understand the effects of moisture on overwintering hives and how our winterizing methods might be improved.
Ramsey Research Foundation
The goal of the Ramsey Research Foundation is to fund critical research initiatives most in need of support by letting any person be a stakeholder in the scientific process.
Bee Informed Partnership
The Bee Informed Partnership is a national collaboration of leading research labs and universities in agricultural science to better understand honey bee declines in the United States.
Project Apis m.
