Heidi Wolff’s Research Presentation at Maryland State Beekeepers Association

Heidi Wolff discusses her research at the Fall meeting for the Maryland State Beekeepers Association on Urban vs. Rural Apiculture: An Observational Study of Pollen Quality and Content Aim: researching the differences between urban and rural apiaries, namely, looking at the pollen that is collected by the bees. She will sort the pollen and approximate the biodiversity of the available, blooming plants that the bees visit and gather pollen from. She believes that the pollen collected in an urban environment will be more diverse, thus, providing increased dietary breadth for our bees. She will analyze the protein content and pesticide load in the pollen samples as well, in an effort to better understand the nutritional content and impact of the pollen collected.
