Rowan Jacobsen talked about Fruitless Fall: The Collapse of the Honeybee and the Coming Agricultural Crisis (Bloomsbury USA; September 16, 2008). The book explores the death of 30 billion honeybees in the northern hemisphere and the ramifications this loss has on agriculture. Mr. Jacobsen reports that honeybees pollinate one third of American crops and due to Colony Collapse Disorder, many hives are being transported around the world to avoid an agricultural collapse. He responded to questions from the audience following his remarks.

Rowan Jacobsen is the author of A Geography of Oysters and Chocolate Unwrapped. His writing has appeared in several publications, including the New York Times and Culture and Travel. close
