Want naast de zogenaamde pestsoorten als bladluizen hebben ook heel wat andere dieren en planten ernstig te lijden onder het gebruik van de gifstoffen. Een recente studie suggereert dat op termijn alleen de meest resistente soorten zullen overblijven doordat het pesticide minder resistente soorten benadeelt in de competitie voor voedsel.
De wereldwijde afname van bijen, hommels en andere bestuivers heeft grote consequenties voor de voedselzekerheid en het behoud van biodiversiteit. Wetenschappers van Wageningen University wijzen er in het gezaghebbende tijdschrift Ecology Letters op dat een verdere verslechtering van de omstandigheden voor bestuivers kan leiden tot een plotseling uitsterven van talloze soorten.
Veel plantensoorten zijn voor de productie van zaden of vruchten afhankelijk van bestuivers die stuifmeel van de ene naar de andere bloem overbrengen. Bestuivers krijgen daar vervolgens nectar voor terug. Honey bees, crucial in the pollination of many U. EPA should further restrict the times, methods of application, and locations of neonicotinoid use in order to protect pollinators. In instances where bees and other pollinators cannot be fully protected, we urge you to suspend the use of neonicotinoid products.
Accordingly, EPA should conduct the requisite cost-benefit analysis and reject applications to register any prophylactic insecticides when EPA determines that their prophylactic use would undermine basic Integrated Pest Management IPM principles, may harm organic farm production, or are not cost-effective, either for the farmer or the nation as a whole.
Fully comply with the Endangered Species Act Section 7 consultation requirements before registering pesticides. For neonicotinoids already registered, EPA should initiate consultation for all threatened and endangered pollinators immediately. Ensure pesticide labels are up to date and require a detailed statement on the label of all neonicotinoid products, including treated seeds, not on just foliar use products as is the case now. Prior to registration of any new pesticide with high bee toxicity, require a comprehensive data set on pollinator toxicity, including both acute and chronic sublethal to native and managed bees at multiple life stages.
Pesticide seed treatments should be fully assessed for impacts. Furthermore, neonicotinoid-treated seeds should not be exempted from federal pesticide regulations, as EPA currently allows. Conditional registration allows a new active ingredient to enter the market for an unspecified period of time while the registrant gathers safety data requested by EPA.
Rectify discrepancies between application rates for backyard garden products and agricultural products. EPA should direct pesticides registrants to review product labels to determine the extent of the discrepancy between backyard use rates and agricultural rates. A recent analysis compared legal labels rates of the active ingredient imidacloprid for use on apple trees in backyard to agricultural application rates and found that use rates in a backyard could be up to times higher than in agricultural applications.
All discrepancies should be rectified. Re-categorize commercial neonicotinoid products as restricted use. The vast majority of neonicotinoid products are designed as general use. As such, individuals can apply these pesticides at their place of employment without obtaining a pesticide applicators license. Due to the newly emerging science demonstrating the risks of neonicotinoids, EPA should reassess neonicotinoid products intended for commercial use to determine whether they should be re-categorized as restricted use.
Download the biodiversity and farming booklet teacher's edition pdf. Environmental Protection Agency will help researchers at the LSU Agricultural Center determine whether lab-tested safety precautions to protect honey bees from mosquito spraying actually work in the field.
Lead researcher Kristen Healy, assistant professor of entomology at the LSU Agricultural Center, said most of the work on insecticide safety around bees has been done in lab settings with little testing of how those safety measures work in the real world.
What is biological diversity? What does biodiversity have to do with the food we eat? How do farmers grow food around the world? Can farming affect biodiversity? So what do you think and feel?
Tools for charting learning progression and for learning new vocabulary. Sample letter to parents. Sample rubrics for assessment. Suspects have included pesticides, disease-bearing parasites and poor nutrition. The findings break new ground on why large numbers of bees are dying though they do not identify the specific cause of CCD, where an entire beehive dies at once. For the first time ever, scientists have documented a widespread extinction of bees that occurred 65 million years ago, concurrent with the massive event that wiped out land dinosaurs and many flowering plants.
Al in was bij fabrikant Bayer bekend dat het veelgebruikte bestrijdingsmiddel imidacloprid een schadelijke uitwerking heeft op bijen.
Dit blijkt uit drie studies die in oktober in Engeland zijn gepubliceerd na een verzoek op grond van de Britse openbaarheidswetgeving. Een wereldwijd veel gebruikt pesticide is waarschijnlijk verantwoordelijk voor de 'bijenverdwijnziekte'. Tot die conclusie zijn Franse en Britse wetenschappers gekomen.
The first day of the conference presented a general overview of current scientific knowledge on invasive alien species in Belgium. The second day focused on field experiences and analyse tools we have to our disposal to prevent and control biological invasions.
For the third consecutive year since , the European Week of Bees and Pollinators will be taking place in the European Parliament under the patronage of Mr. Gaston Franco. It will be once again the occasion to raise awareness of policy-makers and the general public on the importance of bees and the precious service offered by pollinators at a time of operational application of the future common agricultural policy.
This high-level conference organised by the sustainable development Intergroup of the European Parliament and partners will have the privilege to welcome for the second time in the European Parliament His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco, whose Foundation leads an outstanding battle for the protection of biodiversity, and in particular of wild bees.
The conference will seek to contribute to the assessment of the current state of bee health, present concrete and effective responses to improve the sanitary condition of the bee population, and coordinate actions at EU level in support of the beekeeping sector. Scientists have been baffled by the mass die-off of honeybees that has destroyed around 10m beehives since The collapse has sometimes taken on an almost sci-fi quality.
For example, honeybees mysteriously disappear from their hives. Stranger still, their bodies are seldom found. The crisis among these creatures has scientists worried. Bees are a crucial part of the crop cycle, the pollination of several species of flowers and, of course, a vital source of breakfast honey. These areas usually total about one or two acres per plot. There is evidence that in Europe and North America many species of pollinators are in decline, both in abundance and distribution.
Although there is a long list of potential causes of this decline, there is concern that neonicotinoid insecticides, in particular through their use as seed treatments are, at least in part, responsible. This paper describes a project that set out to summarize the natural science evidence base relevant to neonicotinoid insecticides and insect pollinators in as policy-neutral terms as possible.
A series of evidence statements are listed and categorized according to the nature of the underlying information. The evidence summary forms the appendix to this paper and an annotated bibliography is provided in the electronic supplementary material. Declining populations of bee pollinators are a cause of concern, with major repercussions for biodiversity loss and food security.
RNA viruses associated with honeybees represent a potential threat to other insect pollinators, but the extent of this threat is poorly understood. This study aims to attain a detailed understanding of the current and ongoing risk of emerging infectious disease EID transmission between managed and wild pollinator species across a wide range of RNA viruses. Within a structured large-scale national survey across 26 independent sites, we quantify the prevalence and pathogen loads of multiple RNA viruses in co-occurring managed honeybee Apis mellifera and wild bumblebee Bombus spp.
We then construct models that compare virus prevalence between wild and managed pollinators. Multiple RNA viruses associated with honeybees are widespread in sympatric wild bumblebee populations. Virus prevalence in honeybees is a significant predictor of virus prevalence in bumblebees, but we remain cautious in speculating over the principle direction of pathogen transmission. We demonstrate species-specific differences in prevalence, indicating significant variation in disease susceptibility or tolerance.
Pathogen loads within individual bumblebees may be high and in the case of at least one RNA virus, prevalence is higher in wild bumblebees than in managed honeybee populations. Our findings indicate widespread transmission of RNA viruses between managed and wild bee pollinators, pointing to an interconnected network of potential disease pressures within and among pollinator species.
In the context of the biodiversity crisis, our study emphasizes the importance of targeting a wide range of pathogens and defining host associations when considering potential drivers of population decline.
This report, aimed at professionals in urban and spatial planning and public administration, is concerned with the relations between lifestyles of urban populations on one hand and protection of biodiversity in urban areas on the other.

The brochure contains information on the ABS system, case studies and step-by step procedures. The brochure is available in English, French and Spanish. The site also offers checklists, and updates on current international policy developments. On the Walloon server there are still some articles in the archives. The funding is a focused investment to improve pollinator health and will be targeted in five Midwestern states, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
A new study shows that as air pollution increases, the ability of bees to find food diminishes. The particles interfere with the apian olfactory system, say scientists at Penn State. Airborne contaminants confuse bees and react with the fragrance molecules put out by flowers, affecting the lifespans of these vital volatile compounds as well as their ability to travel.
Met name wetenschappers uit het Verenigd Koninkrijk doen onderzoek naar de effectiviteit van deze randen. De groep van Dave Goulson beschreef onlangs in een alarmerend artikel dat akkerranden onbedoeld een negatief effect op bijen kunnen hebben.
This article presents results of an analysis of honey bee losses over the winter of in the Netherlands, from a sample of 86 colonies, located at 43 apiaries. The apiaries were selected using spatially stratified random sampling. Colony winter loss data were collected and related to various measures of colony strength recorded in summer, as well as data from laboratory analysis of sample material taken from two selected colonies in each of the 43 apiaries.
The logistic regression model which best explained the risk of winter loss included, in order of statistical importance, the variables 1 Varroa destructor mite infestation rate in October , 2 presence of the cyano-substituted neonicotinoids acetamiprid or thiacloprid in the first 2 weeks of August in at least one of the honey bee matrices honey, bees or bee bread pollen , 3 presence of Brassica napus oilseed rape or Sinapis arvensis wild mustard pollen in bee bread in early August , and 4 a measure of the unexplained winter losses for the postal code area where the colonies were located, obtained from a different dataset.
We consider in the discussion that reduced opportunities for foraging in July and August because of bad weather may have added substantially to the adverse effects of acetamiprid and thiacloprid.
A novel feature of this work is its use of postal code random effects from two other independent datasets collected in the annual national monitoring by questionnaires of winter losses of honey bees in the Netherlands.
