Undergrad Clare Ols received an Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity award from the UA College of Arts and Sciences to help fund her sequencing (well, her's, and Charles', and Vanessa's) of COI from our UA Arboretum Bee Biodiversity Survey. Clare has done a lot of work, not only to come out and put out the bee bowls, but processing specimens, sorting, and IDing, so the grant is well-deserved!
Congratulations to Jason, who won best poster at the UA Department of Biology Biofest research poster competition. Gets a nice chunk of change for research or meeting travel!
The bee game also made its debut! Was a pretty big hit, lots of people interested in playing and learning how hard it is to fly at high elevations (including some professors!)
