Promoting Bee Research
The Honey & Pollination Center at UC Davis works with UC Davis departmental partners to promote research in the fields of pollination, bee health and honey quality and bring that information to our stakeholders and the public. The center is involved in efforts to build awareness of the importance of our native pollinators and honey bees.

UC Davis's Current Research
Current research includes, honey bee genetics and breeding, native bee biology and queen bee reproductive health. Queen bees are crucial to the survivorship and productivity of the entire colony as queen bees are the only bee capable of reproducing. The expert faculty at UC Davis continues to develop research providing long term solutions to the decline of honey bee population by studying the health and reproductive health processes of queen bees.
