Healthy Pollinators,
Healthy Environments,
Healthy Communities.

Welcome to our Research Excellence Cluster on Bee Health, Impact, and Value in the Environment (BeeHIVE). 

In response to recent shortages and alarming declines of wild and managed bee populations, the BeeHIVE cluster explores the honey bee’s role as a pollinator, producer, and biomonitor. Using innovative fingerprinting tools, we seek to understand how these critical functions are impacted by environmental exposures (both natural and human-caused), with the common goal of improving the health of honey bees and of native pollinators.
