|The Beekeeping Crisis in Europe - an Environmentalist's point of view|
This chapter does not describe in details all the bee pathologies, parasites et predators as this study ce document is mainly aimed at informed readers. Works on bees and beekeeping will provide with the necessary basic knowledge. I found nevertheless necessary to explain here a few advanced concepts about the most spread and pressing topics that will be useful to understand the rest of this report, and to mention a number of side aspects that are often neglected while these might reveal relevant aspects in the analysis of a problem yet considered by most as multifactorial but of which impact might prove more significant that at first sight.
