Welcome to the Spiesman Ecology Lab in the Department of Entomology at Kansas State University. We study how environmental change affects the biodiversity of pollinators, the plants they rely on, and their ability to perform essential pollination services. We are also developing new ways to automate the observation and identification of pollinators using machine learning and computer vision. Check out our project areas below for more information.
