York creates new hive of interdisciplinary bee research

July 3, 2020

York University has announced that the Centre for Bee Ecology, Evolution and Conservation (BEEc), an interdisciplinary initiative, has become an Organized Research Unit (ORU). The move will enable the BEEc to dive deeper into the crisis affecting the health and decline of bees globally. “The bee crisis is multidimensional and there is no simple solution,” said BEEc Director Amro Zayed. “BEEc will allow us to bring talented biologists and mathematicians, but also engineers, social scientists and economists to help us answer the big questions in the field.” York (ON)
