Algorithm Predicts Pesticide Impact
Graphic depicts an AI approach to determining whether a proposed new pesticide is toxic to honey bees based on its molecular structure, undated. Artificial intelligence engineers in the United States have developed a computer model that can tell in advance whether a pesticide will harm pollinators.

Small Floral Strips Found Hugely Beneficial To Bees In Study
Picture shows wildflower strips deployed in Washington, comprising a mix of Hall's aster, Canada goldenrod, Lupine, Sunflower and Yarrow. Small patches of pollinator-friendly planting can have an enormously positive impact on biodiversity, a study carried out by an international team of researchers has confirmed.

Oxford Study Confirms Pesticides’ Harmful Impact On Bees
The bee's optomotor response is tested by showing videos of horizontally moving vertical bars to her on two screens, creating the illusion of optic flow in undated photo. Researchers in the United Kingdom have used an insect version of the straight-line walking challenge to show for the first time that insecticides damage the nervous system of honeybees.
