      All:

      Nancy Adamson (nladamson@...) at Virginia Tech has just put together an exceptionally well crafted ppt on the use of native bees in crop systems.  You can see the ppt at her web site at:

      Ants


      Theirs is a perfection of pure form.
      Nobody but has his proper place and knows it.
      Everything they do is functional.
      Each foray in a zigzag line
      Each prodigious lifting
      Of thirty-two times their own weight
      Each excavation into the earth's core
      Each erection
      Of a crumbly parapetted tower-


      None of these feats is a private pleasure,
      None of them done
      For the sake of the skill alone-


      They've got a going concern down there,
      A full egg-hatchery
      A wet-nursery of aphids
      A trained troop of maintenance engineers
      Sanitation experts
      A corps of hunters
      And butchers
      An army


      A queen
      Each
      Is nothing without the others, each being a part
      Of something greater than all of them put together
      A purpose which none of them knows
      Since each is only
      The one thing that he does. There is
      A true consistency
      Toward which their actions tend.
      The ants have bred and inbred to perfection.
      The strains of their genes that survive survive.
      Every possible contingency
      Has been foreseen and written into the plan.


      Nothing they do will be wrong.
