Uni maths boffins to help bees
2:16pm Thursday 17th January 2013 in News
MATHEMATICIANS from Essex University are hoping to help bees make honey.
A team hopes to make a model which finds the best places to put hives on a piece of land to make sure they pollinate trees.
Increasing pollination rates is seen as crucial as bee colonies have declined significantly in recent years, but one in three mouthfuls of food we eat is dependent on pollination, according to the British Beekeepers Association.
