It's the Bees' Knees
It's the Bees' Knees
This is my friend Tracy who is an entomologist and a taxonomist. Her specialty is bees. As a taxonomist, she studies the different kinds of bees. It can be tricky to determine the species of a specimen. To figure it out, you look at characters, at the physical morphology. A character might be the shape of the plates on a bee's abdomen, it might be the colors of the hairs on its face. Or, it might have something to do with the shape or texture or color of (wait for it...) its knees. And bees have a lot of knees. Each bee has six legs, and each leg has at least two knees (though an entomologist might not use that word, knee, but that's sure as heck what they are) depending on how you count them. So let's be conservative and figure we're talking a 12 knee/bee ratio. And Tracy has several boxes she's working on today with oh, between fifty and a hundred bees per box. So we have, uh, a lot of knees in that room. Bees' knees. ODC knees ******* A bit of clarification; a taxonomist classifies. Taxonomist study all kinds of living things, not just bees. They study seaweed and slime molds, felines and fungus, algae and albatross. Taxonomists determine what constitutes a species and how different organisms are related to each other. Together with claudistics, it forms the science of systematics in which evolution is explored. Just for the record, there is no reputable biologist who has any doubts about evolution. That claptrap about it being "just" a theory is perpetuated by people who were looking out the window thinking about other things in high school biology class. When you are chatting with a friend, the word theory has a different meaning than it does to a scientist. "Gosh, the Oreos keep vanishing. But I have a theory that your brother Calvin has been at the cookie jar when I've been busy doing the laundry." Using the word theory is this context, is fine, but it is, to a scientist, like describing a whale as a big fish. We don't sweat the details when your grandmother calls a whale a fish. But casual conversation is different than the reality. When a scientist, even those who are mothers, talk about missing cookies, it is not unusual to hear them use language differently. ""Ha! The Oreos keep vanishing. My current hypothesis is that Calvin has been taking them when I've been busy doing the laundry." And your scientist mom will not call young Calvin on the carpet based on conjecture. She will observe to make sure she has hard data. Science is like that. Truth is important. And it is a hard habit to break. One thinks of Richard Feynman's line "The first principle is to not fool yourself and you are the easiest person to fool." So scientists, shaped by the culture of science, are usually a careful lot. It is a beautiful thing. Coming into it late, I was an artist first, I find myself overly excitable by comparison. But it is a disciplined way of thinking that I strive towards... mostly... LOL. In science, a theory is BIG. In science, a theory, a scientific theory is a well-supported body of interconnected statements that explains observations and can be used to make testable predictions. So taxonomy is the boots on the ground gathering up of the data and claudistics gets beautifully mathy to work out the probable ancestry of organisms. That evolution happened is not in doubt. That people have an issue with it baffles us. But then, look what happened to Galileo back in the day. Now we do not, we cannot doubt that the Earth goes around the sun. But time was, it was cutting edge and, I guess, frightening. The boundary of what we can know expands as our techniques and technology grow. And the boundary will always scare some people. Personally, I'd rather hang out with the people who are excited by that boundary, who want to do their bit to push further into it, to explore it. The more we learn about evolution, the more robust the theory turns out to be. And the more fascinating. The particular reason that my friend Tracy studies bees is pollination issues. It's said that every third bite of food that you put in your mouth, you owe to an insect. Without insects there would be no apples, no pecans, no spinach or peppers or kale or lettuce, no olives or oranges, no peppers, no eggplant, no tomatoes, no blueberries. And the honeybees, as we all know, are in trouble. But honeybees are not the only bees out there. If they were to become extinct, people might end up going hungry. But in some places, pollination can happen without honeybees. It appears that the smaller farms in which not every scrap of land has been cultivated, have good pollination rates from wild bees. It might just work out that if some habitat was left alone, and the spraying was stopped or minimized, wild bees and certain types of flies could step in to do the job. But is this really true? Are there certain types of bees that we need to encourage? What kind of habitat do we nee

164/365 X is for eXample ?
I really could not for the life of me think of anything for X. So this is me being a bad eXample... The kids were sitting at the breakfast bar (just to the left there) eating dinner so I had been standing in the kitchen talking to them while eating. Well when we decided to have some cookies for dessert (the kids had Circus Animal Cookies my dad sent and I had Girl Scout cookies!) I sat down on the counter. Ever since I was a kid I've done it - chatting with my mom while cooking or while Jeff's making lunch, whatever - and it's so bad because now the kids want to do it, but they always end up spilling something or knocking something off... So as I was sitting there I thought of this and jumped up to grab the camera & set it up and took some quick pictures. I didn't intend to cut off my head, I have some with my head in it, but I actually liked it better without my head.
