Rachael Winfree

Welcome to Rachael Winfree's Lab


Members of the Winfree lab work to better understand pollinators and the pollination services they provide. Much of our research uses pollinators and pollination as a model system for testing ideas about the relationships among environmental change, biodiversity, and ecosystem function. We also seek to put our science into practice, through conservation and management.
