Is the Decline in Honey Bees a Threat to Global Food Security?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

One in every three bites of food eaten worldwide depends on pollinators, especially honey bees. The decline in honey bee population is in the news everywhere, from academic publications to the Wall Street Journal. Yale calls the declining bee population a threat to global agriculture. What exactly is going on? How big is this problem? What can we do about it? We will explore these questions with the help of leading speakers and panelists drawn from academia, government and industry.

Speakers:
Jerry Hayes - Commercial Director, Beelogics (unit of Monsanto)
Bob Curtis - Associate Director, Agricultural Affairs, Almond Board of California
Amy Toth - Assitant Professor, Dept of Ecology, Evolution and Organismal Biology, Iowa State University
Ravi Pottathil - Chief Scientist, VAMA
Gabe Dadant - Principal, Dadant & Sons 

There will be a Mexican taco bar and soft drinks for refreshments.
