Apiculture and bee ecology
I have a special interest in apiculture and the ecologies of honey bees and wild bees. My consulting and teaching address bee biology, health, and habitat requirements. I am also interested in work that improves landscape structure to provide better habitat for bees.
I regularly attend bee courses and conferences in Canada and the USA. I am a member of the Nova Scotia Beekeepers Association, Eastern Apiculture Society, Halifax Honey Bee Society, and the American Apitherapy Society.
