Alum Creek Pollinator Study

When most people think of bees, they think of the European honeybee. However, there are hundreds of bee species native to the southeastern US that provide essential pollination services for native plants and crops. The Southern Research Station is currently studying the diversity of bees and other pollinators on all 19 of the southeastern Experimental Forests to better understand how forest composition and management affects these important insects.
