Would We Starve Without Bees?

Neonicotinoid Pesticides and Bees 


Briefly explain the role of the honeybee as a pollinator.  Describe the process of pollination by bees.
List and describe some factors thought to contribute to the declining rates of honeybees.

Neonicotinoid pesticides have been temporarily banned in Europe.  Explain why you agree or disagree with banning these pesticides.

Describe Colony Collapse Disorder and explain how neonicotinoids possibly contribute to CCD.

Describe the economic impact of the loss of honeybees.

Identify foods we consume that are bee pollinated.

Come up with a menu of what your family typically eats for dinner for one week.  Divide your food items in your menu into categories (dairy, veggies, fruits, meats/poultry, grains).  Cross out any foods that are bee pollinated (keep in mind the animal products you consume-what do they eat?) Once you have subtracted all the bee pollinated food items, come up with a new menu.  

What is an Indicator Species?  Use the website to determine whether or not you believe honeybees should be considered an indicator species.  Include citations from the website to justify your answer.
