Here we'll carry out a review of the most important newsletters in the beekeeping sector. One of them is Apis-uk edited by Mr. Cramp, who has an eye on what is actually happening in the world of beescience and elsewhere:
"The topic of interest and discussion for
most people this month will probably be the commencement of another war
in the Middle East and whether one is 'for it' or 'against it', those beekeepers
in certainly the Western democracies will find their beekeeping little
affected by it. This will not necessarily be the case however for beekeepers
in the war zone. All wars, just or unjust, can and usually do adversely
affect the lives and livelihoods of the average person caught up in them
and post war reconstruction is important in helping these unfortunate and
usually innocent people to return to normality".
(Editorial of of recent newsletter edited by Mr. David Cramp www.beedata.com/apis-uk/newsletters/apis-uk0303.htm)
Regarding the area of southern Mesopotamia (between Euphrat and Tigris) it has once been a kind of paradise, an archetypical landscape not only for bees, which was also called the "garden of Eden", the ancient country of Babylonians and Sumerers. Now it is called "Lost paradise" (FAZ) as it has been destroyed by the dictator of Iraq in 1991. However, after the war it should become a kind of paradise again - also with the help of bees (Full version in: Apiculture 2 (2) 2003).
Also regarding scientific news Apis-uk is recommended. In the recent issue you'll find the following contents: "Editorial; Bekeeping news; Bees for Development web review; Bee Press; Using some of the products of the hive - John Yates; Fact or Fiction - The honey bee dance questioned; Historical note; Readers letters - Kate Gurasashhvili, Brian P Dennis, Mike Gaze, Thiele consulting news; Kent one day Beekeeping course - Richard Worden; Beekeeping events diary".
Annother good newsletter is APIS-NL edited by Mr. T. Sanford/PhD, emerited Professor at Florida University. You'll find recent information on scientific research - not all ecological, however, sometimes one can find a review of "mainstream" organic beekeeping. His e-mail is: email@example.com.
We would like to provide you also with a review of German newsletters, but we didn't succeed to find one that fits in the previously discussed newletters.

Beekeeper Portals in Germany
Lately they mushroom up, these research instituts, „ information portals "and „ competence centres" for organic agriculture (organic bee keeping closed-in). Regarding bee keeping one hears only on the margin something, or it’s being misleadingly reported, as it is the case for example at the foundation ecology and agriculture (Soel) (1).
Is one really endeavoured, to see through the kind of researching in the sciences, or is it rather a matter of realizing an optical effectual Internet appearance? If enough pictures are available and all comply with the newest stand of technics, one is already pleased and sees lief over content failings. Does it shows here the degeneration of the science to so-called "cinema science" as it has been named by Rudolf Steiner one time?
Even special adjusted bee keeper portals offer as a rule only one-sided and partial informations. Thus Mr Hartmut Ebert runs for example a bee keeper portal (2), on which have got together the friends of artificial insemination, like Naturland bee keepers, salesman of insemination apparatus and „mainstream" organic bee keepers. In order to give it the air of bee keeping which considers the character of bees, it is being untiringly refered to Mr Michael Weiler, who is as everybody knows being looked upon as the „ text book writer " in the „ mainstream organic scene " and, whose talent, to level differences, get celebrated everywhere - we have reported in detail at other places (3).
A more scientifical air can be found in Mr Stever's Beearchive (4). In comparison to beekeeping archives and galleries world-wide, for example compared with the virtual beekeeping gallery (www.beekeeping.com), or US - American and Canadian sites it is certainly an infinitesimal archive and differs rarely from Mr Ebert’s portal.
