This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. Starting in late 2006, commercial migratory beekeepers along the East Coast of the U.S. began reporting sharp declines in their honey bee colonies. Scientists named this phenomenon Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). Overall, the number of managed honey bee colonies dropped an estimated 35.8% in the winter of 2007/2008. The reasons for colony losses are not yet known. Contents of this report: (1) Importance of Honey Bee Pollination; (2) Extent and Symptoms of CCD: Past Honey Bee Population Losses; How CCD Differs from Past Bee Colony
