Harry H. Laidlaw Jr. Honey Bee Research
Nominater: Denny Lancaster, Talking Hands Award Coordinator http://www.faeriekeeper.net/talking.htm
The Harry H. Laidlaw Jr. Honey Bee Research Facility at the University of California, Davis, is the largest and most comprehensive state‐supported apiculture facility in North America and the only one in California.
Do you want to know how you could start your own business with a honey leomande stand? And what about barbecued Pork Steaks or Orange Honey Barbecued Ribs? No, it's not a cookbook I am reviewing. I found hundreds of recipes they all incorporate honey. I landed there incidentally, when I reviewed the website of the Harry H. Laidlaw Jr. Honey Bee Research Facility from California with close relationship to the University of California. It is named for the founder of this state-supported apiculture facility, Harry Hyde Laidlaw Jr. (1907-2003), considered the father of honey bee genetics.
Kathy Keatley Garvey, Communications Specialist, is the Webmaster of this great Laidlaw site and the photographer of pretty pictures. You will learn all about bees on this site.
You may ask, why making such hugh efforts for this little four wings insects. Albert Einstein once said: "If all bees would disappear, 45 years later also all humans would be dead." Indeed our lifes are dependent on bees: They are responsible for the pollination of plants. And about one-third of the human food is derived from insect-pollinated plants. For that reason this website is hugely important and is worthy to honor it the Future Award.
You can navigate the site to: Quick links, Bee Bio News, Events, Honey Bees, Native Bees, Pollination, Instruction, Honey Bee Haven, Photo Gallery, Kids' Zone, Links, Donations, Directions. The pages are excellent designed and illustrated with wonderful images, but also all pages are compatibel with text only browsers.
Congratulations to Timelines Future Award.
