    Honeybees are an important part of pollination, which plays an important part in human survival. Graduate student Kali Cox studies the impact honeybee body size has on the number of ovarioles present or produced in honeybee ovaries.

  • Risk-Taking Adolescents

    Existing research has shown a link between sensation-seeking – the tendency to seek out excitement – and engagement in risk-taking behaviors among adolescents.
