Event Description

Dr. Kirsten S. Traynor investigates honey bee health and how pesticides impact social behavior. She currently has a dual appointment as a research associate at Arizona State University and at the Free University in Berlin. She recently launched a new quarterly magazine 2 Million Blossoms: protecting our pollinators.

In 2006-2007, Kirsten received a German Chancellor Fellowship. During that time she drove over 50,000 miles throughout Western Europe to study the differences between European & American beekeeping. Fascinated with the social complexity of a honey bee hive, she earned her PhD in biology with Dr. Robert Page. While a grad student, she spent almost a year in Avignon, France in the lab of Dr. Yves Le Conte as a Fulbright Fellow. She edited American Bee Journal from November 2017 – December 2018. She is the author of Two Million Blossoms: Discovering the Medicinal Benefits of Honey and Simple, Smart Beekeeping. She previously managed a small apiary producing top quality nucs and Maryland reared queens, but has taken a break from running her own bees to focus on her new magazine.

At last month's zoom meeting I had noticed too late people asking for the zoom link via this platform - my apologies.

Eric is working on figuring out how to send a link instead for the meeting..., but if there is no link - simply type in information given via email blast - works the same. ;)

Thank you!

Kirsten is currently researching overseas in Germany - her time zone is 6 hours ahead of us - it'll be midnight for her. We thank her and hope you all can make the earlier time slot!!
