Metabolomics unveils the influence of dietary phytochemicals on residual pesticide...

The losses of honey bee colonies and declines of other insect pollinators have been associated with negative effects of pesticides. Honey bees as well as other pollinators are nectar and pollen foragers and thus are exposed to an extensive range of phytochemicals. Understanding the synergistic, additive, and antagonistic effects of plant secondary metabolites and pesticides…

PhD position in honeybee ecology

Background: Honeybees are fascinating social insects, provide pollination services for major crops and many wild plant species, and beekeeping allows the harvest of honey and other valuable products. Land use intensification, climate change, limited availability of floral food resources, and new pests and parasites have change environmental conditions for honeybees and are linked to periodically…
