The Hive Detectives: Chronicle of a Honey Bee Catastrophe (Scientists in the Field) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Without honey bees the world would be a different place. There would be no honey, no beeswax for candles, and, worst of all, barely a fruit, nut, or vegetable to eat. So imagine beekeeper Dave Hackenburgs horror when he discovered twenty million of his charges had vanished. Those missing bees became the first casualties of a mysterious scourge that continues to plague honey bee populations today. In The Hive Detectives, Loree Griffin Burns profiles bee wranglers and bee scientists who have been working to understand colony collapse disorder, or CCD. In this dramatic and enlightening story, readers explore the lives of the fuzzy, buzzy insects and learn what might happen to us if they were gone.

Synopsis:

An examination of bee wranglers and bee scientists who have been working to understand colony collapse disorder, or CCD. Readers explore the lives of the fuzzy, buzzy insects and learn what might happen if they were gone. Full color.

Synopsis:

THE HIVE DETECTIVES will be a science book for middle-grade readers in the Scientists in the Field series. Pulled straight from todays headlines: the disappearance of Americas honey bees.
