The Center for Pollinator Research at Penn State will be hosting the second International Conference on Pollinator Biology, Health and Policy from August 14-17, 2013. The conference will be held at Pennsylvania State University.
A major theme of this year’s conference will be the effects of environmental contaminants on pollinator genomics, development, physiology and behavior. The conference will feature two world-renowned keynote speakers: David Goulson (University of Stirling), an expert in the behavior, ecosystems services, and conservation of bumble bees, and Heather Patisaul (North Carolina State University), who will share insights into the genomic, neurophysiological and behavioral impacts of environmental contaminants that act as endocrine disruptors in mammals. Additional symposia will include invited and contributed talks and posters related to pollinator behavior, physiology, host-parasite interactions, conservation, ecosystems services, and policy.
The conference agenda, online registration, and online abstract submission will be available in early February 2013.
