Professor Robert Pickard is Honorary President of the Cardiff, Vale and Valleys Beekeeping Association
Professor Pickard has supported CVVBKA for many years and every January he speaks at our members meeting. This year, he spoke about bees around the world, to 60+ members and it was a very enjoyable evening.
Professor Pickard is an international authority on the biology of honeybees and Chair of the International Bee Research Association. He is patron of the Welsh Beekeeping Association and the UK Central Association of Beekeepers. Formerly, he was the Editor of the Journal of Apicultural Research. He has been described in Bee World as “an original research scientist and a gifted teacher” and his public lectures on energy, environment, agriculture, honeybees, nutrition, brains, social evolution and Shakespeare have been popular throughout the world, from North America to New Zealand.
