Jack Pridham Lecture 2012: Where's the buzz?

Posted on 25/10/2012

Bumblebees are a familiar and much-loved part of the natural world. They are also essential for reproduction in flowering plants and production in many crops. They were the subject of the School of Biological Sciences' Jack Pridham Lecture, given on 15 October  by Dr Mark Brown, Senior Lecturer in Biological Sciences. The event was part of the Science for Schools Lecture series and coincided with national Biology Week.

Dr Brown discussed some well-known myths about bumblebees and gave insight into the national and global decline of these fuzzy fliers, and what can be done to reverse it. A recording of the Jack Pridham Lecture is now available.
