Colony of the bumble bee
Andrew Bourke (UEA BIO)

Researchers in the School of Biological Sciences at The University of East Anglia on the Norwich Research Park are studying Bombus terrestris in order to understand how evolutionary conflicts of interest between queens and workers within insect societies are resolved. We are also interested in developing methods to measure basic ecological parameters in wild bee populations, with the aim of aiding the conservation of these essential pollinators.
