We are pleased to re-present Kathryn Spilios PHD as part of Festooning programming this Wednesday at 1pm. We were sad that she was lost from our lineup during wintry mix-ups, but the BU Beekeepers will host her wonderful presentation on Waggle Dancing inside of our installation. Come visit us at 808 Commonwealth Ave on March 20th!
1pm // Life of the Party // BU Beekeepers invite Kathryn E Spilios Ph.D
The social life of bees is quite complex, but beautifully organized. Through a series of dance steps, the bees are able to communicate complicated information about their environment and encourage other bees to visit the flowers and bring back more food to keep the party going. Boston University’s very own Kathryn Spilios joins us from the Department of Biology to share her research focused on colony-level organization and communication in bees.
