    @1 Nou…

    Although CCD probably will not cause honeybees to go extinct, it could push many beekeepers out of business. If beekeepers’ skills and know-how become a rarity as a result, then even if CCD is eventually overcome, nearly 100 of our crops could be left without pollinators and large-scale production of certain crops could become impossible. We would still have corn, wheat, potatoes and rice. But many fruits and vegetables we consume routinely today such as apples, blueberries, broccoli and almonds could become the food of kings.

    Opvallend op pagina 2:

    Even some organic beekeepers were affected.

    Daar wordt impliciet gesteld dat biologisch werkende imkers doorgaans geen last hebben van CCD. Dat zou betekenen dat de oplossing van het probleem toch niet zo complex is.

    @Gadget, ja, of dat er zo weinig biologisch werkende imkers zijn dat ‘some’ de lading dekt voor eenzelfde percentage als onder gewone imkers.
