GUIJO DUEÑAS/PN - Bees and flowers co-evolve with a long-standing symbiotic relationship. Bees depend on flowers for nectar, which they use to produce honey, and flowers need bees for pollination. But according to scientists, bees worldwide are threatened by a number of ecological and environmental factors such as pesticides, fungi and even cell phone networks. The world’s food supply is threatened because bees and the way they pollinate and carry food to their hives are threatened.
