Yeah Science - 03/10/2012 - The Decline of the Honeybee

Hello hominids, 

The last of the five talks of Yeah Science on October 3rd 2012, was delivered by James Hazelton - a blistering expose on the sordid habits of the honey bee. From interpretive dance to oddly tempting bee-beards, the decline of their numbers worldwide is a concern for us all. 

You can watch them on the internet tubes by doing a Clicky Here (Part one and Part two). Alternatively, loosen your neck posture and consequently cast your gaze below to the two embedded videos:

Part one

Part two

James Hazelton works as an Operations Centre engineer at a wind energy company, and engages in research in Solar PV at UNSW's School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering. He loves things that are rad, and dislikes low ceilings.
