Question: Science

What is the possible link between colony collapse and hybridized food crops/monocultures?

In Science | Asked by Dr. John Carmen
Answers

Some scientists believe that genetically altered crops have caused colony collapse disorder in that they are not naturally occuring plants. They have been engineered for certain traits; traits which have caused trauma for the bees who are natural foragers by nature. Monocultures remove the seasonality for bees, confusing or simply starving them since there are no other crops to feed from once the one crop has finished producing pollen.
