Georgina Hollands is a Postgraduate Research Student within Geography and Environmental Science at the University of Southampton.

I graduated from the University of Southampton in 2017 with an Integrated Masters degree in Ecology. Over the course of my degree I carried out research into the cognitive abilities of honey bees with exposure to electromagnetic fields, and the impact of hurricanes on tropical ant communities.

Research interests

My research interests are in tropical ecology, animal behaviour and entomology, specialising in Apidae.

PhD research

Title: The effect of stressors on bees: Land use change in the tropics and its impacts on bee diversity, diet, fitness, and behaviour.

Supervisors: Dr Jake Snaddon, Professor Suleiman Sharkh.

Project aims: This research hopes to provide a better understanding of how honey bee hives are influenced by surrounding tropical landscapes and the stressors within them, both through cognitive assays, pesticide analysis and dietary mechanisms.
