Fifty years ago, Einstein already insisted that “if bees were to disappear from the globe, mankind would only have four years left to live.” As 80% of plant species require bees to be pollinated and without pollination, there can be no fruits or vegetables, bees appear to be as indispensable to the economy as they are to man’s survival. In More than Honey, Markus Imhoof examines how, since the 1980s, numerous colonies of bees throughout the world have mysteriously been decimated.
