Apimondia 2009 :
“The bee, the sentinel of the environment” is the theme of this 41st edition.
This topic is brought to light at a time when the bee is facing a mortality record with an average of 300 000 colonies disappearing every year in France since 1995.
More than 500 scientists will gather together to compare their experiences and give you the results of their research.

80% of the flowering plant species on our planet,
representing over 200 000 species, reproduce by pollination.
The bee works to enrich our food
beyond the production of honey, pollen and royal jelly,
the bee participates in 65% of the biodiversity maintenance
