    Dr Elizabeth Duncan (Leeds University)

    Bees lead incredibly diverse lives.  Some live only a few weeks while some live for years.  Some get to reproduce while others are essentially sterile.  Some live solitary lives, while others are social (or eusocial), living in large and complex groups.  As well as being remarkable and fascinating creatures, bees are critically important to us as pollinators of crops.

    Dr Elizabeth Duncan carries out research on different types of bees at Leeds University.  She will speak about some of the most surprising aspects of the lives of bees, including her own research into their reproduction.  She will also discuss biodiversity of bees in the UK and some of the threats they face from agriculture and other human intervention.
