Today's word

I'm not at all sure about this story from New Zealand, but it has introduced me to a new word, allegedly: mellifaralsation referring to when bees with an African origin (not Africanized bees) begin to dominate genetically.

The story also talks of developing “pure strains” of honeybees in South Island, New Zealand. Oh yeah?
