Scientists in Canada have discovered that hibernating bumblebee queens have a resilience to flooding, surviving up to a week submerged underwater.
The study, published in Royal Society’s Biology Letters, was set up after scientists discovered that bees hibernating inside test tubes that had filled with water, were still alive when the water was drained out.
Dr Sabrina Rondeau at the University of Guelph in Ontario tells Tech & Science Daily what happened when they tested the resilience of 143 bumblebee queens underwater.
