The Case of the Vanishing Honeybees: 04/04/14
You might not have noticed but honeybees have been disappearing specifically they have been declining at alarming rates. The Case of the Vanishing Honeybees by Sandra Marble looks at the effects of diminishing populations, the possible causes, and what's being done to save the honeybees.
For a short book — 48 pages, The Case of the Vanishing Honeybees is densely packed with facts. The information is presented in clear, succinct, and easy to understand way.
The section on Tokyo, for instance, has really stuck with me. It's the section I also go to when describing the book. Apparently the city has a crow problem. The birds have adapted to hunt garbage, being able to tear open the clear garbage bags everyone is expected to use.BUT there's a turf war between the birds and the bees. By introducing urban apiaries, the city is stating to curb the crow problem.
