In response to the unexplained losses of U.S. honey bee colonies now known as colony collapse disorder (CCD), USDA's Agricultural Research Service (ARS) and Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service (CSREES) led a collaborative effort to define an approach to CCD, resulting in the CCD Action Plan in July 2007. Many universities and organizations--Federal, State, and private--were involved in developing this plan and are carrying out the work that addresses the CCD problem. The CCD Action Plan is organized under four topic areas: (1) survey and (sample) data collection; (2) analysis of existing samples; (3) research to identify factors affecting honey bee health, including attempts to recreate CCD symptomology; and (4) mitigative and preventive measures.
