If bees go extinct, will humans survive?
The collapse of honeybee hives is a serious issue. Now, scientists are working to better understanding this decline, and have found that it may be rooted in the size of a hive.
The spread of the disease that's wiping out global bee populations is humanmade-and largely druvien by European honeybee populations.
Scientists have found strong support for the long-standing evolutionary theory of kin selection.
There's a lot of talk about bees, but this time it's serious. Wild bees are disappearing in many of the U.S.'s most important farmlands, including California's Central Valley, the Midwest's corn belt, and the Mississippi River valley. Now, researchers are trying to find out why.
A headbanging bee takes a unique approach to pollination. A certain insect from Australia actually uses high-speed headbanging in order to gather pollen.
Humans aren't the only ones who like caffeine. It turns out that bees can resist it, either. Scientists have found that bees will actually seek out caffeinated nectar over plain nectar.
Tiny sensors may just save bees. Intel and CSIRO have joined together to create tiny bee "backpacks" that will hopefully help researchers discover why bee populations are declining in Australia.
Bees may be able to naturally vaccinate their offspring. Scientists have found out how bees naturally immunize their babies by studying a bee blood protein called vitellogenin.
Scientists have discovered that more than 70 percent of pollen and honey samples collected from foraging bees in Massachusetts contain at least one neonicotinoid, a class of pesticide that has been implicated in Colony Collapse Disorder.
