Our environment, and the countless creatures who inhabit it, face many challenges and affronts–most of which are likely invisible to we humans.
One crisis we have been witness to, however, is colony collapse disorder–a phenomenon impacting honeybees and, by extension, virtually every human who eats food.
Joining Peter to explore CCD and its lessons are Sainath Suryanarayanan, an Assistant Scientist of Biology and Society at the Morgridge Institute for Research, and Daniel Kleinman, the Associate Provost for Graduate Affairs at Boston University. Both are co-authors of the new book, Vanishing Bees: Science, Politics, and Honeybee Health.
