The article announces that a national Bee Care Tour will be launched by Bayer Corp. in Orlando, Florida, to encourage beekeepers to focus on the factors which are causing the decline in the population of honeybees. It mentions that the tour will travel to agriculture universities and farm communities across the state to find the reasons of decrease in the population of honeybees.

    We studied the changes in the population density of the red-backed vole ( Clethrionomys rutilus Pall.) on the northern coast of the Sea of Okhotsk (60° N) during three population cycles (1980–1990). A total of 3111 animals were studied, including 1006 alive voles. For evaluation of the...

    We tested the impact of colony density and climatic conditions on the level of queen polyandry in different wild populations of the honeybee ( Apis mellifera jemenitica). We identified the mating frequency of queens by genotyping worker offspring ( n = 672) of 28 wild colonies with...

    The influence of urbanization on stream insect communities was determined by comparing physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of streams draining 20 catchments with varying levels of urban land-cover in Maine (U.S.A). Percent total impervious surface area (PTIA), which was used to...

    Sampling methods to estimate acridid density per surface area unit in grassland habitats were compared using presence-absence data and count data. Sampling plans based on 6 yr of surveys were devised to estimate the density of Chorthippus spp., Euchorthippus spp., and Calliptamus italicus L...
