The talk, "A bee's eye perspective on sustainable agriculture", by Claire Kremen is the annual E. Paul Catts Public Lecture in entomology at WSU.
Kremen, an authority on pollinators and particular bees, will discuss how conservation of "pollinator-friendly" habitat across landscapes can mitigate harm and contribute to sustainable farming and global food security.
