Apimondia talks

My final words on Apimondia 2005. The number and range of papers were considerable -- but rather odd that virtually every presentation is limited to just 20 minutes. And even odder that not all bee pathology researchers seem to be up-to-speed on varroa findings in other continents. Still, I suppose that's not so unusual in academic circles ...

The biggest Irish honey packer, Boyne Valey Honey, produced an excellent glossy book In Praise of Honey that was in every delegates' pack.

Just a pity that the organisers did not produce enough books of the conference abstracts. With a fee of over Euros 100 per delegate that seemed a bit of a cheek!
