Ella Stroh is a second-year master's student in the Entomology department at Purdue University. She studies bee pollination in specialty crops. Her work explores the effects of bee pollination on crop yield, aiming to 1) identify crop systems that are receiving suboptimal pollination, and 2) determine which bee species are important pollinators for each specialty crop. She uses her research to inform Indiana growers about the pollinators on their farms and promote the use of pollinator-friendly management practices.
