The mystery behind disappearing honeybees have gotten a lot of press coverage, some of it misleading and overblown (hint: it wasn’t the cellphones).  But up at Salon is an excellent dialogue between four scientists and farmers that does a great job of putting in perspective and fleshing out the many factors that may be involved.  In precis: bees are going to be alright in the long run, but their recent plight is one symptom of larger changes that will have uncertain consequences.
