Characteristics of the conducted research

  1. Biochemical and physiological-morphological defense barriers and the epigenetic response of Apis mellifera to some environmental factors: natural (Nosema spp., Varroa destructor) and anthropogenic (acaricides, environmental pollutants, biostimulators, insecticides, wax adulteration).
  2. The impact of the diversity of urbanization potential on the number of pollinators, their species composition and immune potential, including the biochemical and physiological response in their organisms, morphometric, reproductive and behavioral variation, as well as sex and age-related histological changes in the fat body, glands, hemolymph and others tissues in solitary bees.
