Bee scientist Peter Dearden

From The Weekend, 10:50 am on 27 December 2014

Otago University Geneticist, Peter Dearden is an expert on the honey bee and works closely with the beekeeping industry in New Zealand. Peter says most feral bees have died out, so managed bees play a vital role in agricultural pollinating. His hard work on behalf of this country's honey bee population saw him be awarded the Royal Society's Callaghan Medal for Science Communication.
