Charles Michener, ‘patriarch’ of bee research, dies at 97
Charles Michener’s fascination with bees and other insects started early — early enough, in fact, that he published his first writings on them when he was just 16. Considered one of the world’s foremost experts on bees, if not the foremost expert, Michener was the Watkins Distinguished Professor Emeritus of ecology and evolutionary biology and curator emeritus at the Natural History Museum at Kansas University. Michener died Sunday at age 97.
