In Australia has created an artificial flower with nectar and pollen

As you know, everything in nature is interconnected, and the disappearance of one species will undoubtedly cause problems in others. For example, several years ago, according to reports by US scientists, the population of bees decreased by 42%. Many have linked the bee extinction with environmental degradation and change of the nectar of flowers. And it is to the latter problem, according to the publication Deezen, one of the Australians decided to attract attention. He created artificial flowers that completely replicate their natural counterparts.

Responsible For the development of the artist from Australia Michael candy. He created the flowers have four petals yellow. The color was selected so that it most resembled the color of the flowers of rapeseed. In the center of each artificial flower is a tube for feeding on nectar, and the nectar system is installed feeding pollen with three retractable artificial stamens. The composition of artificial nectar is sugar and water in proportions close to those of the natural nectar. With the pollen also having some difficulties: to develop an artificial analogue has not yet been secured, although some experts tend to argue that in the future it will be possible. So for your project, Michael has used this pollen collected in the hives of bees.

In the experiment were able to establish that these artificial flowers are quite suitable in order to use them as a reserve for the restoration of flower fields and attracting the population of bees in new areas. In the video below, you can see how the system works supply of pollen and nectar in the artificial flower and how bees communicate.
