Bee Smart Crosswords #7: The Honey Puzzle

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.

Bee Smart Crossword #5: Honey Bee Taxonomy

So, what is taxonomy?  According to the dictionary;

tax·on·o·my
takˈsänəmē/
noun

BIOLOGY
  1. 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.
