The Bee: A Natural History

An Arnold Arboretum Lecture for Adults

Noah Wilson-Rich, PhD, Founder and Chief Scientific Officer, The Best Bees Company

Bees are crucial to the reproduction and diversity of flowering plants, and the economic contributions of these irreplaceable insects measure in the tens of billions of dollars each year. Yet bees are dying at an alarming rate, threatening food supplies and ecosystems around the world. In this natural history talk, Noah Wilson-Rich will provide a window into the vitally important role that bees play in the life of our planet. He will speak about the human–bee relationship through time; explain a bit about bee evolution, ecology, and physiology; and share his holistic approach to bee health and how you can help bee populations.
