This week on bFM’s Dear Science show

By Steve Pointing 13/08/2015

The ‘space lettuce’ story has been widely covered this week (see my blog ‘Rocket salad Anyone’ from 11 August), and lets face it few things are less appealing than a 2 day old lettuce – so this week listen to some other science news stories on bFM.  I discuss how new advances in understanding the immune system of bees may help fight colony collapse disorder, and why our assumptions about how species survived mass extinctions may need a re-think.
