Bat Pollination In Thailand: A Decade of Research Online Webinar.
Come join the latest of Asian Pollinator Initiatives Alliance’s (APIA) series of webinars on pollinators on the 13th of May from 2pm Bangkok time (ICT)
Led by Assistant Professor Dr. Alyssa Stewart, who has been studying bat nectar in Thailand since 2011, this webinar will be the first in the series to cover bat pollination and it is a can't miss opportunity.
Dr. Alyssa Stewart's bio:
Dr. Stewart first became interested in ecology as an undergraduate student, when she was an exchange student for a year at Mahidol University. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Biology at the University of North Carolina, before completing her Ph.D. in Ecology at the University of Maryland. Now she is back at Mahidol University, where she has been teaching and conducting research for the past five years. Dr. Stewart is passionate about teaching ecology to students, and conducting ecological research in a highly diverse country like Thailand. Her research focuses mostly on pollinator biodiversity and conservation. Some of her on-going projects include studying the pollinators of native plant species, studying the factors that promote pollinator diversity in urban environments, and studying the effect of chemical pesticides on pollinators. In today’s presentation, she will talk about bat pollination in Thailand, which she has been studying for the past 10 years.
Student translator’s info:
Piriya Hassa was a Master’s student in Dr. Stewart’s lab and recently defended her thesis last December. She completed her Master’s work on the insect pollinator communities of morning glory species in northeastern Thailand, and has also been instrumental in helping her advisor collect data on bat pollinators.
This webinar will be conducted in English, but real-time Thai translations will be provided.
