NS & NB bee expert

Bee expert Robyn McCallum from Tabusintac NB, a Dalhousie University student; is doing research into native bee populations that could provide a much-needed boost to blueberry production in Nova Scotia.

McCallum, who’s also at Perennia Innovation Centre in Bible Hill and Kentville; will defend her thesis, Enhancing Lowbush Blueberry Agro-ecosystems for Wild Pollinators and Natural Enemies, later this spring.

Until then, McCallum isn’t revealing the details and findings of her research.
