Beekeepers, environmentalists and academics will heading to the Royal Cornwall Showground this Friday for a summit to discuss the global decline in bee populations.

Recent years have seen nearly 50 per cent of European bee hives not making through the winter, a trend echoed in North America.

These losses are having a serious impact on biodiversity, and if they are not stemmed soon will affect food production across the world. One third of all the crops human consume rely on bees and smaller groups of other insects for pollination.
