Seriously, this is extremely important a finding!

Flowers Communicate With Electricity

Discovery News

Flowers may be silent, but scientists have just discovered that electric fields allow them to communicate with bumblebees and possibly other species, including humans. It s well known that color, shape, pattern and fragrances allow flowers to connect...

Loss of wild pollinators serious threat to crop yields, study finds

They found that half of the 109 bee species recorded by Robertson had been lost and there had been a serious degradation of the pollination provided by the remaining wild insects, with their ability to pollinate specific plants falling by more than half.

Is it wireless or is it chemicals? Or is it both that are killing the bees?

Bee-harming pesticides escape proposed European ban

''Britain and Germany have caved in to the industry lobby and refused to ban bee-killing pesticides,'' said Iain Keith, at campaign group Avaaz. ''Today's vote flies in the face of science and public opinion and maintains the disastrous chemical armageddon on bees, which are critical for the future of our food.''

The chemical companies that dominate the billion-dollar neonicotinoid market, Bayer and Syngenta, were relieved.

Nectar Quest: The ?Bees and Flowers Mutual Admiration Society? Under Threat

A new 30-year study from the University of Bristol in England has revealed that bees and flowers share a symbiotic relationship based on the electric currents each emits. This affects not only the pollination and proliferation of the plants, but also the nourishment of the bees and the hives.

Bees not only can sense the negative charge coming from flowers using color, shape, pattern and humidity, but are able to change the electrical charge to tell which ones contain nectar and if another bee has beat them to it.

Bees worldwide are threatened by a number of ecological and environmental factors, such as pesticides, fungi, GMOs and cell phone networks.

The world s food supply is threatened because bees and the way they pollinate and carry food to their hives is threatened.
