The Bee-tter Truth: interactive session on bees

The Ecological Society of IISER-TVM (ESI) and the BEE Lab organised an interactive session for the students to get to know more about honey bees in general, and the giant honey bees (which are found on campus) in particular. The session addressed the need to co-exist with the bees, which have been reported to be sharply declining across the country, following which Hema and Dr Ravi Maruthachalam interacted with the students. Hema spoke about the need to conserve and co-exist with the bees, and Ravi gave interesting insights into honey collection from different part of the world, and the biochemical properties of honey which confers its medicinal properties.
