Bee Craft Research Lectures
Two of the lectures by young researchers, originally intended for the 2020 National Honey Show.
Ayla Paul, University of Reading, will talk about state-of-the-art analyses used to authenticate and trace the geographic origin of UK honeys
Hamish Symington (Dept. of Plant Sciences, University of Cambridge) will speak about the science of pollination - how it works, why plants need it and how research at Cambridge will help breed crops that are more efficient at being pollinated and more rewarding for the insects that visit them.

Ayla Paul
@The University of Reading
"Geographic origin and authenticity of UK honey samples." Ayla is now completing her PhD thesis and will speak about her research on the origin and authenticity of UK honey samples. She will give insights of the various methods - mass spectrometry, trace element (geology) analysis and pollen analysis - that she uses to develop an "Isoscape" for the UK. Is it possible to determine the geographic origins?
Hamish Symington
@University of Cambridge
Flower Power - the science of pollination. Hamish explores how pollination works, how much of our food relies on insects, and how research at the university's Department of Plant Sciences aims to make flowers more efficient at being pollinated, thus helping to feed the projected 2050 global population of 10 billion people.
