Our Lab is part of the University of Turin (UNITO), Department of Agricultural, Forest, and Food Sciences (DISAFA). UNITO is a higher education, research-focused public institution founded in 1404, counting ~70000 students.
Our research investigates the health and behaviour of multiple bee species, such as honey bees, bumblebees, and solitary bees.
We aim at gaining a more comprehensive understanding of the complex dynamics of both individual and combined impact of multiple factors on bees, including (but not limited to) pesticides and nutrition (see: publications).
We use traditional and innovative techniques including behavioural, physiological, and modelling approaches for research, monitoring, and risk assessment purposes.
