It only needs 33 grams of honey
to circumnavigate the globe
Each up and down is a moment of many km daily flight, to capture the fragrance of flowers, pollinate plants, collect honey and perpetuate her species. For every kilogram of produced honey a bee touches 4 million flowers and must move 150 thousand km, i.e. about 4 times the earth’s circumference. It is an extremely cautious and very self-sufficient being.
Scientific committees, individual researchers, universities, government institutions and environmental organisations are trying to understand how bees live and function, how they pollinate plants and communicate with each other. The close cohesive bonds of the beehive have intrigued sociologists, anthropologists and psychologists. Its hierarchical administrative structure has been studied by political sciences. The sophisticated architectural form of the hive is a mathematical and engineering marvel.
