DOWNLOAD ´ The Beekeeper's Lament How One Man and Half a Billion Honey Bees Help Feed America “You’ll never think of bees their keepers or the fruits and nuts of their laborsthe same way again” Trevor Corson author of The Secret Life of LobstersAward winning journalist Hannah Nordhaus tells the remarkable story of John Miller one of America’s foremost migratory beekeepers. This was without doubt a very enjoyable book to read even though it wasn t much of a science book If you want to find about bees themselves read The Buzz About Bees which I think is unbeaten as an exploration of the nature of bees Here you won t really even get a feel for what a superorganism is or how individual bees really aren t animals in their own right However what you will find a lot about is beekeepers and their complication ridden businessI was amazed at the complexity of industrial scale beekeeping in the US how for example the bee people are paid large sums by almond growers to transport their hives into the almond groves to perform the pollination then have to move out again swiftly as there is no food at all for the bees once the blossoms have gone This whole idea of driving thousands of hives across America is one I simply hadn t realized existedSimilarly it was fascinating to read about all the difficulties industrial beekeepers have faced Like most people I was vaguely aware of the disappearing bees when Colony Collapse Disorder struck but not just how delicate bees were and how afflicted by other disasters particular a nasty mite that destroys them wholesaleEually along with that vague awareness I thought bees were in danger of disappearing and they would if left to their own devices but so effective is the industrial process that bee numbers are being kept up by setting up new colonies with remarkable rapidityThis is without doubt a very readable book though I do find Hannah Nordhaus s writing style a little self consciously arty There are bits of science that you ll find out along the way but it s much about the industry and its ups and downs something that s fascinating in its own right RecommendedReview first published on wwwpopularsciencecouk and reproduced with permission The Painted Art Journal: 24 Projects for Creating Your Visual Narrative get a feel for what a superorganism is or how individual bees really aren t animals in their own right However what you will find a lot about is beekeepers and their complication ridden businessI was amazed at the complexity of industrial scale beekeeping in the US how for example the bee people are paid large sums by almond How to Do Everything with Photoshop CS2 eBook: Colin Smith: Amazon.fr: Amazon Media EUS.à r.l. growers to transport their hives into the almond The Compelling Communicator: Mastering the Art and Science of Exceptional Presentation Design groves to perform the pollination then have to move out again swiftly as there is no food at all for the bees once the blossoms have All about Prayer (Salah) Activity Book (Discover Islam Sticker Activity Books) gone This whole idea of driving thousands of hives across America is one I simply hadn t realized existedSimilarly it was fascinating to read about all the difficulties industrial beekeepers have faced Like most people I was vaguely aware of the disappearing bees when Colony Collapse Disorder struck but not just how delicate bees were and how afflicted by other disasters particular a nasty mite that destroys them wholesaleEually along with that vague awareness I thought bees were in danger of disappearing and they would if left to their own devices but so effective is the industrial process that bee numbers are being kept up by setting up new colonies with remarkable rapidityThis is without doubt a very readable book though I do find Hannah Nordhaus s writing style a little self consciously arty There are bits of science that you ll find out along the way but it s much about the industry and its ups and downs something that s fascinating in its own right RecommendedReview first published on wwwpopularsciencecouk and reproduced with permission
