There are a lot of reasons to visit Montreal. The Notre-Dame Basilica and 21,000-species of plants in Montreal’s botanical gardens come to mind. If island living is not for you (Montreal is on an island), Apimondia’s organizers have tours that will take you away. You can see what’s available at this site. But with 350 oral presentations, 566 posters, and thousands of feet of exhibits and vendors, sight-seeing might not fit your schedule. You can find the complete program guide (a 117-page book) on line, here.
If you have time, drop by and see me present a talk about foraging distances of leafcutters, honey bees, and bumble bees (Foraging distances of commercially-deployed bees: A meta-analysis; 1:45pm, Thursday, September 12, Room 517B) or see my poster (“Who becomes an urban beekeeper?”), which is formally titled Demographic and socio-economic influences of urban beekeeping. It will be up all day on Tuesday, September 10 – look for poster P.07.143.
See you at Apimondia 2019!
