Podcast: Burrow-dwelling solitary bees and the winter of their demise

 

 

Guest podcast by UTSC Biology students: Gillian Sauder and Nyx Radu

Burrow-dwelling solitary bees determine their entry into winter diapause based solely based on temperature, this raises the question; are rising global temperatures delaying diapause in these bees? And how will these diapause delays impact their limited energy reserves and survival rates? Find out on the first and only episode of the hit podcast that one person described as "as educational and depressing as a real conservation biology degree" and which alien archaeologists will describe as "an exemplary demonstration of humanity's damning tendency to joke about their problems rather than fix them."  Life: How It's All Dying (Winter Edition) is available now on a blog near you.
