Over the past four years, 20 to 40 percent of bee colonies in the United States have suffered from colony collapse. He'll explain the team's research and findings.

Thanks for bringing up my question, Leonard. I had a feeling the origin of the problem wasn't in the purview of the study. Thanks also for having this guest on.

I may be wrong, but the research doesn't appear to go into the origins of the viral/fungal problem. I hope your guest can help clarify that.
