Remote sensors allowed us to observe the in-hive activities of honeybees, which could be key to keeping bee colonies worldwide healthy.
Without an array of ecosystems and species, it's tough for farmers to grow crops or ranchers to raise animals.
The world's most widely used herbicide poses a threat to honey bees.
All too often the media buzz is centred around the managed honeybee, at the expense of other wild bee species.
Honey might be synonymous with bees, but they're not the only insects that come up with the goods.
Pollination by commercially raised bees is important to a variety of crops but none more than California almonds. In turn, beekeepers depend on them.
Australia's distinctive native plants give our honey a distinctive stamp. Welcome to melissopalynology: the study of pollen.
Many fruits, nuts and other crops rely on bees to pollinate their flowers at just the right time of year. Many farmers rent bees to get the job done at pollination time.
Honeybees receive a lot of attention, but the first North American bee to be listed as an endangered species is a wild bumble bee. Wild bees are vital pollinators, and some are declining rapidly.
Meta-analysis studies have made it possible to sort through apparently contradictory research by looking at the bigger picture.
Rather than trying to out-compete each other, flowers may work together to attract bees en masse. It's the sort of approach that is effective in the world of advertising too.
Honeybees are responsible for only a third of crop pollination in Britain.
We're in the middle of an Insectageddon. But a garden of native plants can help insects, as well as birds and other wildlife.
Venus flytrap plants have 'traps' that snap shut on insect prey. But they also rely on insects for pollination. New research suggests how the plant avoids eating its allies.
Hoverflies are helping spread disease among the already declining bee population.
Pollinating bees are among the 'natural assets' that have a greater – though less visible – impact than plastic waste on the environment.
Pollination in South Africa's ecosystems is extremely complex. However new advances such as pollen metabarcoding help us understand interactions between pollinators and pollen.
If warmer weather is your sign to reach for the pesticide, think again. From better soil to your own army of beneficial bugs, here are five reasons to put down the insect spray.
Is the 61% spike in the price of Brazil nuts this year because we're going nuts for nuts?
New research shows bees see a blue halo around flowers thanks to nanostructures on its petals.
