Bees and Heatwaves: Preparing For A Warming World
|Free webinar with Yanet Sepulveda and Isobel Sexton about a project investigating the impacts of extreme weather on bee populations.
As heatwaves become more frequent and intense, it is essential to understand how pollinators respond to such extreme conditions. The Buzz Club’s Bees and Heatwaves project involves volunteers from all over the UK to help investigate whether bees (including bumblebees, honey bees and solitary bees) alter their activity patterns in response to heat events. Through the observation of their behaviour during heatwaves and the plant species they choose for foraging, the Buzz Club aim to develop effective strategies to support them in a warming world.
