HoneyFest Lecture: Prof. Deborah Delaney on Bees, 1PM Sunday

August 6, 2016

Deborah Delaney, assistant professor in the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware, will give us a lecture at HoneyFest on Sunday. Her topic will be “Colony Collapse Disorder – 10 Years On.” This lecture will happen in the Coach House at 1PM

At the University of Delaware, Deb mentors graduate and undergraduate students working on various aspects of pollinator health and productivity. She teaches Insects and Society, Apiculture and Pollination Ecology. She has over 20 years of experience working with pollinators, specifically honeybees and maintains between 25 to 60 colonies in the teaching apiary at UD’s Newark farm. Her research program has four main focal areas: 1) genetic identity and diversity of US honey bees 2) temporal stability of pollinator populations and 3) best management solutions for creating sustainable managed pollinator populations 4) pollinator nutrition and forage mapping.

We’re looking forward to Prof. Delaney’s talk on Sunday. Come join us!
