A feast of bees

For UK readers and international gad-abouts, I think a plug for some interesting bee talks organized by the Central Association of Bee-Keepers is in order. You need to be a member (cheap!), book a place and pay a very reasonable fee:

Thursday 21st October 2004
Social Evening, Wax Chandlers Hall, City of London:
Oliver Field, Field Honey Farms: Beekeeping in Mongolia and China. Including buffet supper.
Update: short report on the meeting.

Friday 19th November 2004 - Sunday 21st November 2004
Autumn Weekend Conference, The Falcon Hotel, Stratford upon Avon:
Albert Knight, Bee Improvement and Bee Breeders' Association: A rational approach to the honey bees of Britain.
Dr Robert Paxton, Queens University Belfast: Cooperation and conflict in bee societies and Conservation genetics of Irish bees.
Prof Ted Benton, Essex: Bumble bees.
Dr Gavin Ramsay, Scottish Crops Research Institute: Pollinators and gene flow.
Teresa Santillan-Galicia, Rothamsted: Interactions between honey bees, Varroa destructor and viruses.
