Re: CCD Research
How about you pick one of those studies, read it, and tell me what it is exactly that it proves. Teotting out a bunch of titles doesnt really get us anywhere.
One thing that continues.to be.at issue is that everyone wants to talk about field realistic dose/exposure, but no onw wants to discuss what that should be. My reading on things is that generally the exposure seems to be.less than one would think.
The.weird data point, that ive brought up before but no one has picked up on, is the USDA survey of polllen collected from the.comb (not trapped) from 2012. Not a big or general enough survey to tell us much, but 9+% of colonies showed imidacloprid in the pollen samples.....at an average concentration of over 30ppb.
Before we can even discuss what the impacts are, we have to get some handle on the actual exposure so we know what we are measuring. The USDA data is an important place to look.
