The ice cream maker is donating $250,000 for research into the problem of disappearing bees. The University of California, Davis, will get $100,000, and Pennsylvania State University will get the rest. Officials of Haagen-Dazs note about 40 percent of their ice cream flavors are linked to fruit and nut trees pollinated by bees. The company also is launching a national campaign to create awareness of the honeybee's plight.
