The Wonders of Wild Bees: Small Organisms, Epic Possibilities

April 6, 2021

Our food supply depends on pollination by honey bees and wild bees. Researcher Rufus Isaacs explains the unique role of wild bees and why we should all care about declining bee populations.

As a professor of entomology at Michigan State University, Isaacs is one of many faculty using insects, small organisms, to find solutions to significant problems. These faculty and their students search for answers to concerns related to the environment, biodiversity, food security, agriculture, pollination, human health and more.
