Earlier today, I heard a wonderful NPR story by Robert Krulwich that provides a more extended and experimental discussion of bee swarming behavior that I blogged on a few weeks ago.

His story is called “Nature’s Secret: Why Honey Bees are Better Politicians than Humans.”  It’s only 7 minutes in length and really provides interesting insight on this beehavior.

About Eric Kessler

I am a high school biology teacher at Blue Valley North High School where I have taught freshman Biology and Honors Biology, Field Biology, Zoology, and AP Biology for the past 15 years. I am sponsor of the Environmental Club and our molecular modeling S.M.A.R.T. Team program. I am also the current treasurer of the Kansas Herpetological Society. Although I like most things biological, I have specific interests in the natural history of KS endemics (the outdoors) and things molecular. I am a pretty avid reader, I enjoy maintaining my website, and taking photographs. I plan on having students blogging and creating podcasts by the end of the year.
