Department Professors and Alumni Give Presentations about Pollination Economics in the Face of Pollinator Decline

Dec. 17, 2018

At the Allied Social Science Association's Annual Meeting on Jan. 5, professors and alumni of the UC Davis Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics (ARE) will give presentations in an Agricultural & Applied Economics Association (AAEA) session titled "Pollination Economics: The Supply of Honey and Pollination Services in the Face of Pollinator Decline."

"We hear more about honey bee colony losses because most are managed by humans, but it's important for us to recognize and address the decreases in all pollinator populations, not just honey bees," said session organizer Brittney Goodrich, Auburn University assistant professor and ARE Ph.D. alumna.

Goodrich, ARE Professor Jeffrey Williams, and ARE Department Chair and Professor Rachael Goodhue will present "The Great Bee Migration: Supply Analysis of Honey Bee Colony Shipments into California for Almond Pollination Services." ARE Distinguished Professor Daniel Sumner and ARE Visiting Lecturer and Alumnus Antoine Champetier will present "Beekeeper Costs and Supply Functions for U.S. Honey and Pollination Services."
