The Plight of the Honeybee

8 Sessions
Friday, 1-2:30, Sept 14-Nov 2

The behavior and physiology of the honeybee, Apis mellifera, the most agriculturally important beneficial insect will be explored.  Topics include colony organization, reproduction, communication, foraging behavior, navigation, pollination, nutrition, diseases, pesticides and the contributions of the pesticide industry to colony collapse disorder.  Students will be provided internet links to required material and occasional handouts.
