The Case of the Vanishing Honeybees
A Scientific MysteryBook - 2014
Presents facts about the ongoing investigation into the decline of honey bees around the world from colony collapse disorder, as scientists look at the impact of such factors as pesticides, farmer transportation of bee hives, fungal infections, and climate change.
Honeybees are a crucial part of our food chain. As they gather nectar from flowers to make sweet honey, these bees also play an important role in pollination, helping some plants produce fruit. But large numbers of honeybees are disappearing every year . . . and no one knows why. Is a fungus killing them? Could a poor diet be the cause? What about changes to bees' natural habitat? In this real-life science mystery, scientists and beekeepers are working to answer these questions . . . and save the world's honeybees before it's too late.
