Honey Pecan Pie (Not Just for the Holidays)

Growing up in the South, I learned at a very young age that Pecan pie is awesome. The only problem with Pecan pie is that people tend to only serve this delight during the holidays. This is great and all but the holidays only come around once a year. As a Pecan pie lover, I…

Origin of the Honey Bee: Evolution Part Two, Plant – Pollinator Co-evolution

Evolution is defined most basically as “change over time.” There are many, many factors that may drive or influence the process of biological evolution.

Origin of the Honey Bee: Evolution Part One

As a young student I remember being completely fascinated with the concepts of biological evolution. The idea of catching a glimpse, although often incomplete, of an ancient time was very exciting to me. The “fossil record” is probably one of our most important tools in terms of imagining the plant and animal species that pre-date human…
