9780852651315: A World Without Bees

surprisingly moving ( Metro)

a highly enjoyable, polished, well-researched homage to the honeybee ( Observer)

The success of A World Without Bees lies in its explanation of the challenges faced by the honeybee population and the intensiveness of commercial beekeeping ( Daily Telegraph)

From the Publisher:

Honeybees are dying.

In America, one in three hives was left lifeless at the beginning of 2008

In France, the death rate was more than 60 percent.

In Britain, a government minister warned that honey bees could be extinct within a decade.

A third of all that we eat, and much of what we wear, relies on pollination by honeybees. So if - or when - the world loses its black-and-yellow workers, the consequences will be dire.

What is behind this catastrophe?

Viruses, parasites, pesticides and climate change have all been blamed. As has modern monoculture agribusiness.In this timely book, two keen amateur apiarists investigate all the claims and counterclaims with the help of scientists and beekeepers in Europe, America and beyond.

They ask the question that will soon be on everyone's lips: is there any possible way of saving the honeybees - and, with them, the world as we know it?
