Abstract:

For biologist Mark Winston, bees aren't just insects. Their behavior, as well as their physical characteristics, sheds light on the interconnectedness of all life. This program presents an overview of Winston's distinguished career while focusing on his most recent activities specifically, passing on his extensive knowledge to the next generation of entomologists. Having identified nine queen pheromones and studied hundreds of bee colonies, Winston is now moving into a cross disciplinary phase one in which bee rituals and honeycomb building techniques provide rich insight for artists, philosophers, urban planners, and environmental scientists.
