The BeeHolder, Winter 2012

There are two themes running through the articles this time around. Breeding the right bee fDandy lion beeor the region and “keepability”, and the health benefits of honey. This is complemented by a variety of seasonal fillings – meeting reports and information on our nascent program of events for next year. Some of the reports are a bit technical (what can you expect from publications like Microbiology Today?). I hope I have got the balance between education and entertainment about right. Let me know what you think.

Thanks must go to those who contributed articles, which unfortunately had to be trimmed of some of their original goodness in order to squeeze them into this small format publication.

If you want a surprise and to learn something groundbreaking, read the article “The Honey Crop”. It isn't about what you think it is.
