Commercial Beekeeper and PAm board member John Miller has a saying: “North Dakota and California get closer every year"
This new and exciting PAm-funded research from Dr. Matthew Smart, Dr. Clint Otto and Dr. Johnathan Lundgren, provides data about the relationship between land use in the upper Midwest, and colony health of honey bees pollinating almonds.
As I come to the end of my term as a Project Apis m. Costco Canada Scholar, I am reflecting on the lessons I have learned over the past three years of my PhD training, and the new challenges that lie ahead. The support I received from Project Apis m. and Costco Canada during my PhD has been instrumental in my development as a beekeeper and a scientist, and has prepared me to tackle new problems in apiculture in the future.
