Pollination Ecology

"Using DNA Barcoding to Understand Pollination Ecology." Karen Bell, a postdoctoral fellow in Emory's Department of Environmental Sciences, will explain how new DNA barcoding methods can enhance both the speed and the accuracy of pollination identification. She is using these methods to examine the diets of pollinating insects to help assess the health of pollinators under different land management strategies and investigate pollinator declines. A Science Cafe event, at 2 pm in the Atlanta Botanical Garden.
