    Hello,
    > We are looking for beekeepers to participate in a research project on the genetics of Canadian honey bee stocks funded by the Canadian Honey Council's Bee Research Fund. If you are interested, sign up at the following website www.yorku.ca/honeybee Participation is easy! We will send you a labeled prepaid envelop with collection tubes, and you send it back to us with a few dead bees from your yard. We are hoping to sample honey bees from coast to coast; commercial beekeepers, bee breeders, and scientists / hobbyists are welcome.
    > Please see www.yorku.ca/honeybee for more information and to sign up.

    good for you all. this sort of science can sometime tell you a lot and basically how it should work is it take a certain minimum number of data point to get any reliable ESTIMATION of the total population. naturally the more folks that sends samples the clearer the picture that the data will reveal.

    and may PERRY bequeath each of you a piece of pie...
