Boy did I need a few days to recharge. It’s a travel day for me today. But I wanted to give you all a few things to think about:
– Researchers have isolated a fungus that may have something to do with colony collapse disorder and honeybees.
This is a problem for beekeepers. As they share combs among hives and use the same equipment to clean multiple hives they can inadvertently spread the spores, infecting other colonies.
According to the USDA, one in three mouthfuls of the American diet directly or indirectly benefits from honeybee pollination. Bee pollination is responsible for $15 billion in added crop value, particularly for specialty crops.
Science is just fascinating, isn’t it?
– The Ocean Futures website, home ot the Cousteau Institute, has some fascinating stuff on it worth perusing.
