This week’s featured prints equip part of a collaborative ecological research endeavor between a Penn Ph.D. student and the Woodlands Cemetery. Beehives are being treated with a fungal spore that may interrupt the life cycle of the parasitic varroa mite, which is a contributing factor in colony collapse disorder. These materials will help supply the hives with water, sugar syrup, and shelter, while the team evaluates the efficacy of the fungal treatment.
