Background

My name is Nicholas G. Stewart. I'm a research staff member of GGC, and a senior Biology student graduating on Aug. 4th, 2015.

I was born in Houston, TX - but it's difficult to pinpoint exactly where I 'hail' from... Between my birth and where I am now, I've lived in:

  1. Houston, TX
  2. Richfield, CT
  3. Longview, TX
  4. Allentown, PA
  5. Temecula, CA
  6. Hollidaysburg, PA
  7. Altoona, PA
  8. State College, PA
  9. Coatesville, PA
  10. Gaithersburg, MD
  11. Decatur, GA
  12. Avondale Estates, GA
  13. Duluth, GA

But, generally speaking, I say I'm from Allentown, as this is where I went to Middle & High School (minus one year I spent in So-Cal, in Temecula)... my formative years

RESEARCH & SCIENTIFIC EXPERIENCE

I'm currently involved in (3) terrestrial pollinator research studies:

  1. The Georgia Native Pollinator Assessment & Bio-Inventory (2010-current)
  2. Coosa Prairie Rare Plant-Pollinator Census
  3. Mojave Desert Native Bee Diversity & Biogeography Census


GA Native Pollinator Assessment & Bio-Inventory

Logo-Latest Update noCell.png

By far, the largest of the pollinator biodiversity assessments which I've been conducting on native bees is 'The Georgia Native Pollinator Assessment & Bio-Inventory' - based in six (6) N. GA apple orchards over the last six (6) consecutive seasons. I created the project in 2009, and since its inception in 2010, me and my research partner (Dr. Mark Schlueter) have produced troves of data and findings of use to both pollination biologists as well as agriculture.

For instance:
