Our previous work showed the potential for virus' to spillover from honeybees to bumblebees. In a new BBSRC-funded study, we're asking how and why this happens, and how we can stop it

We are leading a pan-European project to understand and mitigate the impacts of pesticides, parasites, and poor nutrition on managed and wild bees in Europe

The short-haired bumblebee went extinct in the UK in the 1980s. We are working with the short-haired bumblebee reintroduction project to return it to the south of England

Nectar and pollen contain more than sugar and water. With researchers at Kew Botanic Gardens, we want to understand how plant chemicals impact bee health

Sphaerularia bombi is a nematode that castrates and controls bumblebee queens - we're interested in all aspects of its biology, from behaviour to gene expression

We are working with the gardening team on campus to improve bee habitat and improve biodiveristy
