Andony Melathopoulos is an Associate Professor of Pollinator Health Extension in the Department of Horticulture at Oregon State University. OSU’s work around pollinator health comes from mandates passed by the Oregon Legislature. He has three primary responsibilities: 1) working with land managers on reducing pesticide exposure to bees and increasing bee habitat, 2) organizing a state-wide native bee survey (the Oregon Bee Atlas), 3) outreach to Oregonians on bee biodiversity, which includes hosting a weekly podcast on pollinator health (PolliNation). He also sits on the Steering Committee of the Oregon Bee Project, which coordinates pollinator health work across state agencies.
