The Biology Department Seminar Series presents Dr. Valerie Peters, Eastern Kentucky University, speaking on the topic "Wild bees and pollination networks: involving citizen scientists to understand threats and potential recovery strategies."

Dr. Peters' research focuses on animal-plant interactions in the context of global change. Her lab seeks to understand how human activities such as surface mine reclamation and agroforestry affect biodiversity and ecosystem services, specifically bird and bee mediated services, such as pollination, pest control and seed dispersal. She has projects in Kentucky and Costa Rica.
