Holt, who works in the Grozinger Lab at Penn State, will discuss the many stressors that honeybees and other pollinators face today. She will focus on some of the molecular research projects that she and other members of the Lab have conducted. Using two microsporidian parasites and their honey bee hosts as a model system, Holt is studying how chronic parasites affect the gene expression, physiology and behavior of their hosts as individuals and as members of a social group.
Refreshments will be provided. Holt’s lecture is part of the BHSU Natural Sciences Seminar Series. For more information contact Raeann Mettler, BHSU instructor of biology, at Raeann.Mettler@BHSU.edu or 605-642-6043.
