Lisa Evans


Dr. Lisa Evans is an early-career biologist with a special interest in behaviour and ecology of social hymenoptera. Her work with Plant and Food Research’s Pollination & Apiculture team involves quantifying the pollination contributions of flower visiting insects in a wide range of agricultural systems as well as improving and diversifying pollination practices.


She is research leader for a 3 year Sustainable Farming Fund programme which aims to optimise pollination of kiwifruit under covers without impacting honey bee hive health. She is based in Brisbane in support of Hort Innovation funded research quantifying honey bee dependence of several Australian crops, including blueberries.
