Research

Bees fascinate and inspire. Bee research fosters creative thought and practical solutions.  
The goal of our bee research at the University of Minnesota is to promote the health of bee pollinators. Our primary research focus is on honey bees, ranging from basic studies on mechanisms of social behaviors to applied studies on bee breeding and management. We also study the abundance and diversity of native bee pollinators. We work as a team to provide the richest learning environment for students at all levels and from all backgrounds. Dr. Marla Spivak, MacArthur Fellow and Distinguished McKnight Professor in Entomology, currently runs the Bee Lab, with excellent technical support of Mr. Gary Reuter and graduate students.
