This is the same subject I wrote about last Earth Day. For more information about the dwindling population of pollinators such as butterflies and bees, check out the articles listed below. The last one is interesting in that it describes the necessity to hand pollinate fruit trees in China, but also provides a bit of good news about bee populations in the U.S.

Wikipedia – Colony Collapse Disorder

Wired – Wild Bee and Butterfly Declines

Wired – It’s Hard Work Being a Bee
