Research Summary:

Research in the Woodard lab focuses on using molecular approaches to advance our fundamental understanding of bumble bees, with an emphasis on how the nutritional environment has shaped this group of bees across both evolutionary and ecological timescales. Current projects include an examination of the energetics of bee-mediated pollination in southern California agroecosystems, a study of floral resource heterogeneity and bumble bee population dynamics in the western US, and a project on how differential patterns of gene regulation help shape the division of labor that is found in bumble bee colonies.
