My PhD work in the Department of Biology, at York University, Toronto, Canada, focuses on bumblebees in protected areas. My goals are to quantify foraging and home ranges for both common and at-risk bumblebee species. My work involves the use of radio tagging to determine the frequency, duration, and distance of foraging behaviour in these species, and will begin in the Koffler Scientific Reserve in King City, ON. It is my hope that this novel data will serve to inform protected area and conservation policies in southern Ontario in the near future.
