Required reading for Those interested in Bee/Pesticide Studies
SETAC (Society for Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry - the uber society for environmental toxicologists) held a workshop last year on pollinator/pesticide issues and how to approach the study of pesticide impacts in bees (Apis and non-Apis). This is not a compilation of results of pesticides impacts, but more of a needs assessment and definition of the approaches one would take in the study of pesticide impacts.
A useful blueprint document for seeking funding and study design.

That the Chemist had poisoned his brain
The cause of his sorrow
