As part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Beltsville Agricultural Research Center, the Bee Research Laboratory conducts "research on the biology and control of honey bee parasites, diseases, and pests to ensure an adequate supply of bees for pollination and honey production." One important service provided by the Laboratory is the searchable ARS Bee Bibliography, which contains bee-keeping related abstracts, summaries, and citations to periodicals, pamphlets, and books from 1905-1973. For more recent records, site visitors can link to Agricola, which contains more than 3.4 million agriculture-related citations from 1970 to the present. Site visitors can also access other sections of the Bee Research Laboratory site including the Beenome Database, staff email addresses, and downloadable publication lists.
