When Professor Roger A. Hoopingarner decided to retire from Michigan State University, he called a few of his friends and asked them to help him put on a symposium.
His premise was simple: What do you think will be the most critical issues in 21st Century apiculture?
Fortunately, Hoopingarner's friend include members of the world's leading bee research teams.
This edition reflects the views of 15 such teams.
They identify subjects critical to the growth of our knowledge about bees and bee culture as they impact upon the future success of apiculture.
Several subjects of continued need, such as pollination research, were excluded to create space for pressing issues.
The result is more than a snapshot in time.
It is both a carefully constructed review of current research efforts as well as a preview of the future.
Following two decades of rapidly changing international beekeeping, these views will carry forward into the 21st century.
