In 3 new videos, you can learn about how the BeeHIVE cluster came to be, how honey can be used to monitor pollution in cities, best management practices for pollinators and crops, bee pests and parasites, and authenticating real versus fake honeys. In Part 1, Dominique and doctoral candidate Kate Smith discuss their honey biomonitoring research, which was undertaken at PCIGR.

BeeHIVE’s mission is to improve the health of honey bees and other pollinators, and in turn improve the environment and communities in which both people and pollinators live. For more information about BeeHIVE and what they do, visit their website.

The Research Excellence Cluster initiative was spearheaded by UBC’s Office of the Vice-President, Research and Innovation (VPRI), and brings together researchers from diverse backgrounds to work toward solving key challenges facing society.
