Caro Munoz will present the results of her 2021 research into the pesticides bees bring back to the hive and how the effects of these pesticides relate to their interaction with crops and wild plants. Overlooked in their significance, insect pollinators play a paramount role in maintaining ecosystem balance and are vital contributors to the health of our environment. In addition, ten brands of honey distributed by national retailers were¬†tested against Massachusetts honey. Munoz’s research was conducted in 2021 in collaboration with MDAR.

Bio: Caro Munoz is a Ph.D. candidate in the Organismic and Evolutionary Biology program at UMASS Amherst. Her primary research and passion is around sustainable agriculture and bee pollinators. Her research focuses on understanding the interactive effects of climate change, landscape structure, and agricultural practices on both managed and wild bees.
