Answer: Wild bees deserve conservation attention in their own right, but from our perspective, it is especially important
Recent research now suggests that bees may be preferentially drawn to pesticide-laced foods as a result of reward mechanisms. It is a fascinating lesson in how knowledge gleaned from addiction science can inform our understanding of a global ecological crisis.
Organic, GMO, pesticide-free, fair-trade -- what do these really mean, are they just trends and how do they affect our planet?
The federal Fish and Wildlife Service is to prohibit neonicotinoid use at national wildlife refuges by next January. The

It's a plague hard to fight and hard to protect ourselves against -- in part because our regulatory system treats the chemicals as if they had rights; safe until proven guilty.
Colony Collapse Disorder is a disease that has killed over 10 million hives or a half a trillion honeybees around the globe
