“Diversity, decline and sustainability of wild bees”
Dr. Sandra Rehan is an Assistant Professor at the University of New Hampshire in the Department of Biological Sciences. In her talk, she will discuss the diversity of wild bees in Northern New England including status assessments. The specific questions she will address are: What species reside in Northern New England and what are their habitat requirements? Do species respond to land use change and how can we sustain healthy pollinator populations? Dr. Rehan addresses these questions through a combination of field- and museum-based studies and through the integration of behavior, ecology and genetics.
Dr. Rehan earned her bachelor’s and PhD degrees from the Brock University, Canada.
