We aim to understand how evolutionary history and life-history traits influence bee health and population stability in human-dominated landscapes

The goal of our extension program is to provide the tools for stakeholders and the public to understand the foundation of bee biology, their role as pollinators, the environmental threats to their populations and potential solutions to their decline.

Diversity in higher education is key to a rich educational experience. We learn from interactions with people with different experiences, beliefs, and perspectives. The López-Uribe lab aims to host students, postdocs and collaborators from diverse backgrounds to promote science that incorporates the needs and views of an increasingly pluralistic society and globalized world.
