Colony Collapse Disorder

Ένα θέμα εκτός της συνηθισμένης θεματολογίας του blog, αλλά εξίσου ενδιαφέρον. Το θέμα αφορά τις μέλισσες και τα προβλήματα που αντιμετωπίζουν και ειδικότερα τα προσφάτως αυξημένα ποσοστά θνησιμότητας που έχουν ανησυχήσει τους πάντες.

Colony Collapse Disorder Is Not What You Think
And why it could turn out to be a good thing.
Mites and pesticides. Fungus and fungicides. Monoculture. Karma. These are a few of the things that have been posited as causes of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). “I, as a researcher, was a little naive in the beginning thinking that we would find one cause and then hopefully one solution” to CCD, said Dennis vanEngelsdorp, an entomologist at the University of Maryland and the lead author of the Bee Informed Partnership’s annual honeybee loss report, which is funded and coauthored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. “But it’s clear especially in the broad definition of CCD—high rates of winter loss and annual loss—that it’s a lot more complicated.”
