Dennis VanEngelsdorp Biography as listed on UMD's website

My research focuses on pollinator health, and honey bee health specifically.  I am particularly intrigued with using an epidemiological approach to understanding and (importantly) improving honey bee health. This approach is multi-faceted, requiring understanding both the etiology of individual bee diseases and the large scale monitoring of colony health.
Some of the areas my lab are addressing include:

  • Identifying determinates of disease in honey bee colonies.
  • Identifying and promoting management systems which promote colony
    health
  • Broad scale monitoring of pollinator health
