Sad to report that Beatriz passed away this morning, 10/18/2022

A retired biologist, originally from Argentina. After years of research in brain catecholamines and endorphins, using laboratory mice as subjects I took quite a turn by choosing pollinators as a subject for my post-retirement second career. It gave me a chance to enjoy the outdoors and my artistic training as painter and photographer. There is a lot to be said about retirement.
