Contemporary Science Issues and Innovations: What Happened to the Honeybees?
Alex Lu, Associate Professor of Environmental Exposure Biology at Harvard School of Public Health, discusses his findings on the decrease of the honeybee population. Dr. Lu's study of the massive loss of honeybees over the last decade (Colony Collapse Disorder) clearly established a link between a neonicotinoid insecticide and CCD. He has also worked to make the public aware of the dangers of this group of insecticides. In this video he also discusses the difficulties scientists encounter when they attempt to launch research on this subject.
