Research

research overview

  • Dr. Oliveras’ current research is focused on bee pollinators. Bees are important pollinators of wild plants as well as economically important crops (e.g. clover, alfalfa, many vegetables and fruits). An understanding of bee species is essential for their conservation and management. Dr. Oliveras has extensive field work experience with bees and flies. In 2009, she published papers on a five-year study of pollinators in natural areas in Boulder County. In 2017, she published a paper on a five-year monitoring study of bumble bees at three different elevations in Boulder County.
