Parallels Between Unresponsive Honey Bees and Human Autism – Neuroscience News

Researchers report genes implicated in human ASD are regulated differently in honeybees that are more unresponsive than their nest mates. The PNAS study provides insight into the genetic heritage shared across species and offers clues about the evolution of social behaviour.

The Bee Crisis and How You Can Help – Sustainable America

Though this story is aimed at US readers, the message is much the same. The more you plant to support pollinators, the greater their chance of survival. And that goes for all pollinators, not just bees.   

One-third of U.S. honeybee colonies died last winter, threatening our entire food system. Insects pollinate a third of everything humans eat – that’s one in three bites you take – including fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and the forage that feeds livestock. Put in simplest terms, as the bee population declines, so does our food supply. We provide a few ways you can help the bees right now.
