Hello fellow melliphiles, you might have noticed that last week, the week of Thanksgiving, we didn’t have a puzzle for you, that is to bee expected as we are always trying to meet the demands of bees, family and business.
Have no fear though! We have a fun and tasty new puzzle for you all about honey. In tune with this week’s theme of honey here on the Bee Smart beekeeping project website AND the podcast featuring C. Marina Marchese co-author of “Honey Connoisseur” (with Kim Flottum).
Of course, you can print out this Crossword, as always using the link to the PF below and yes, it has a word list to help you folks who aren’t into the beekeeping lingo yet.
Here we again. We have a short list of some notable people involved over the years in honey bee research.
You can work the puzzle online here or you can print out the PDF below which also includes a wordlist for those unfamiliar with apicultural terms.
As always, you can get the answer sheet for the puzzle over at the Bee Smart Patreon page. We would love to have your support to keep our efforts moving forward.
Please feel free to download crossword6 in PDF format and work it on paper. As usual, the crossword puzzle answer sheet is available on the Bee Smart beekeeping project Patreon site.
So, what is taxonomy? According to the dictionary;
- the branch of science concerned with classification, especially of organisms; systematics.
- the classification of something, especially organisms.“the taxonomy of these fossils”
Basically, taxonomy is the scientific way of organizing and classifying living things. In the case of our Interests, that would be bees, especially honey bees as far as this puzzle is concerned.
If you prefer working the puzzle on paper, you can print the puzzle out as a PDF with a word list to help you learn new terminology.
If you’d like to print out the crossword please download it with THIS LINK.
