SLU Community Engagement Inventory

Bee Diversity Across a Range of Social and Economic Neighborhoods in St. Louis

Description: This project researches how social, economic, environmental, and ecological factors affect the abundance and distribution of bees across the city of St Louis. Project members examine community gardens, urban farms, and restorations sites weekly for all bee species (around 100 so far). In addition, the members of the project also interview stakeholders and decision makers in order to determine how they perceive pollinator diversity and pollination services.
