The Bee Craft Research Lectures, in collaboration with the CABK

There will be two lectures, to be broadcast with a short break in between.

  • Ayla Paul, University of Reading
    Geographic Origin and Authenticity of UK Honey Samples
    Ayla is now completing her PhD thesis and will speak about her research on the origin and authenticity of UK honey samples. She will give insights of the various methods – mass spectrometry, trace element (geology) analysis and pollen analysis – that she uses to develop an “Isoscape” for the UK. Is it possible to determine the geographic origins?
  • Hamish Symington, University of Cambridge
    Flower Power – The Science of Pollination
    Hamish explores how pollination works, how much of our food relies on insects, and how research at the university’s Department of Plant Sciences aims to make flowers more efficient at being pollinated, thus helping to feed the projected 2050 global population of 10 billion people.
