Mark Winston

Mark Winston is a scientist who specializes in the study of bees. A couple of dozen pages into his book, Bee Time: Lessons from the Hive, you realize how little you know about these fascinating creatures. The Governor General’s Award-winning book is surprisingly readable and you will very quickly be hooked. The bad news is that bee populations are declining. They face the same environmental and climate change challenges as we do. Without bees and their essential service we would face radical reductions in our food supply. Bees are a canary in the coal mine and we must ensure their well-being.

Professor Winston writes passionately and speaks eloquently about his love and concern for both bees and humans.
