STEM Summer Biology Institute 2018

The Biology Summer Institute Research Project is designed to study local pollinator abundances and preferences. Pollinators are a key piece of global biodiversity and provide important ecosystem services to crops and wild plants. There is clear evidence that both wild and domesticated pollinators have recently declined. To contribute to a better understanding of pollinator abundance and preferences, we will:

  • Learn to identify both native and non-native pollinators
  • Collect and analyze field data
  • Collect and analyze DNA of local arthropod
