In this issue, We continue on our Nosmea journey with Randy Oliver, as he delivers Part 2 - The Enigma of Nosmea.

As always, we have a few research articles this issue - looking at global trends in farming practices, broken wing disorders in bees, global temperatures and in A Closer Look, Clarence looks at Mating biology and queen oviposition.
