Nicole Miller-Struttmann is quoted as an expert in Scientific American’s story about the possible long-term impacts of longer springs on bee populations. The article focuses on a new research study about the topic, turning to Miller-Struttmann as an outside expert offering perspectives on the issue:

“And Miller-Struttmann added that an important next stage for this line of research could be 'trying to really understand what climate change means for the whole life history of these organisms'—not just for the workers’ abundance during the spring.”

Miller-Struttmann is the Laurance L. Browning, Jr. Endowed Professor in Biological Sciences in Webster University's College of Arts & Sciences.
