Bees are alright, Pooping phosphorus and National Science Week

Thursday, 3 August 2017 - 8:30am to 9:00am

This week on Lost in Science Stu looks at the buzz around bees and pesticides, specifically one group of pesticides, the neonicotinoids. Is it all gloom and doom as the internet would have us think?
Manisha looks at the phosphorus cycle and how megafauna poop plays a bigger role than expected in keeping our soils high in this essential nutrient.
And did you know National Science Week is just around the corner?  Claire talks us through some of the events celebrating science around the country from August 12 - 20, and some of the ways you can throw a big science party in your neighbourhood too.
