Tell me about your thesis: NZ's native bees

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:26 pm on 20 September 2018

New Zealand has around thirty different species of native bees, which pollinate of wild and cultivated plants. Summer is a time that they appear and a time when spraying can easily wipe out an entire colony.

Dr Ngaire Hart did her PHD thesis on native bees and tells us what she has learned. She'll also be giving a talk about native bees in Auckland.
