From LACBA Secretary, Stacy McKenna & thanks to LACBA Member, Juan Vicente for the link!!!
The National Academies of Science make their publications available (many free f!)or PDF download) at http://www.nap.edu/topics.php- a quick search for "honey bee" will turn up a fascinating area of studies in various categories. Clicking through to the individual titles will also sometimes include links to related podcasts/recordings. (Searching just for BEE will include a variety of energy related topics thanks to the Board on Energy and Environmental Systems). In addition to the books listed on the left, the "National Academies Search Results" box on the right will link to pertinent blog articles, legislation/testimony, etc. Take a look to see what kinds of research your tax dollars are helping fund - they're making it accessible.
