Zora Lewis ’26 searches for bees on Allen Island during a CAPS outing in July. This year's cohort of CAPS students assisted Associate Professor of Biology Dave Angelini by surveying the abundance of bumblebee species on the island, which is part of Colby’s Island Campus. They identified and counted bees by species and observed if those populations changed year to year. The students also collected a small number of bees, which were euthanized by freezing and then photographed from multiple angles to document aspects of their anatomy that relate to growth, flight, and pollination abilities. The students isolated DNA to identify pathogens and other microbes living inside the bees.
