报告摘要:

       We develop a model of honey bee colony collapse based on contamination of forager bees in pesticide contaminated spatial environments. The model consists of differential and difference equations for the spatial distributions of the uncontaminated and contaminated forager bees. A key feature of the model is incorporation of the return to the hive each day of forager bees. The model quantifies colony collapse in terms of two significant properties of honey bee colonies: (1) the fraction of contaminated forager bees that fail to return home due to pesticide contamination, and (2) the fraction of forager bees in the total forager bee population that return to the sites visited on the previous day. If the fraction of contaminated foragers failing to return home is high, then the total population falls below a critical threshold and colony collapse ensues. If the fraction of all foragers that return to previous foraging sites is high, then foragers who visit contaminated sites multiple times have a higher probability of becoming contaminated, and colony collapse ensues. This quantification of colony collapse provides guidance for implementing measures for its avoidance. This is a joint work with Pierre Magaland Glenn Webb.
