The Importance of Bees

December 10, 2013 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Desmond Campus

Bees are tireless pollinators and without them life on Earth would be much different. In recent years, the decline in the bee population has become more and more dramatic. Bees are responsible for pollinating plants and influencing ecological relationships. It is reported that the beekeeping industry is responsible for 1/3 of the food we eat. Maintaining our food supply and the consequence economically could be of profound significance because of the declining population. Learn more about colony collapse disorder (CCD) and why it is of great concern to beekeepers and scientists.
