BeeVisit enables students to evaluate the relative contributions of different pollinator species to a plant's reproductive success through an interactive model of pollen transfer.The model tracks a plant's presentation of pollen through time; pollen may be presented gradually or all at once, and the program lets you choose from a family of power curves to model the shape of the cumulative pollen presentation curve over a set number of time intervals (usually 100). Then, 'bees' of 1, 2, or 3 types are allowed to visit the plant.You specify the expected number and type of visits; this sets the probability of a visit occurring during each interval, and visits occur stochastically according to these probabilities.

Fish and Flowers

We all know rain makes the flowers grow but sometimes fish help too. Thats according to University of Florida ecologist Robert Holt. He and his colleagues studied eight freshwater ponds. There, bees pollinate nearby flowers, while dragonflies prey on the bees. But fish control the dragonfly population by eating their larvae. Holts team compared the flora around ponds with fish to ponds without. Ponds that had fish in them tended to have fewer larval dragonflies, and fewer adult dragonflies which meant more bees, and more frequent pollinations. Plants around fishless ponds, on the other hand, were more likely to be pollen starved. The study suggests one way that the effects of overfishing may ripple onto land. A more complete description of the research and a transcript of the audio file is included. In addition, links to additional resources are included for further inquiry.

Should governments do more to help save the honey bee?

Good question. We need bees for the survival of seeds and a tremendous number of our fruits and vegetables, but we also need to protect the food supply from pests. Feeding a hungry world is a huge job; likewise, commercial farming and chemical pesticides are big business. However, the economic impact of bee devastation is already being felt throughout the world. For example, in parts of China, the government has told farmers to hand pollinate apples and pears.

Colony Collapse Disorder is a global problem, and different governments are responding--but should governments do more?

This unit of study combines Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core State Standards for Language Arts, and the C3 Framework for Social Studies Standards; additionally, this fits the "You Decide" OSPI-Designed Assessment (formerly know as the Classroom Based Assessment--CBA)

This lesson will help adult learners to identify honey bees, identify different types of honey bees in a hive, describe pollination process, interpret the importance of pollination and honey bees for pollination and gain knowledge about beekeeping. This will provide a business idea for them to pursue at the same type help conserve honey bee populations. In the long run this will help make food production sustainable. Several online and paper resources are available in this lesson.
