The Benjamin Triwaks Bee Research Center provides a framework for research on the biology of the honey bee, and on bees as pollinators. Research at the Center focuses on studying the decision-making processes of bees from a multidisciplinary perspective, combining tools and ideas from behavioral ecology, cognitive psychology and economics. The Center also maintains collaborations with the apicultural and pollination communities, and seeks to implement research techniques and findings into solving problems in these fields. The Center supports undergraduate courses in bee biology and in apiculture, and is home to several graduate students, postdocs and technicians.
