It's a path issue. From inside TeXworks, the path is simply


whereas in TeXShop or the Terminal it's


Presumably, Biber calls kpsewhich via the path, whereas I guess other 
tools have it linked so they don't need to find it. So the issue arises 
as that Biber doesn't say that it can't run kpsewhich, it just fails to 
do it :(

I've attached my typesetting set up as a screenshot: you can see that 
there, TeXworks does 'see' TeXbin, etc. So I'm not sure exactly where 
one can alter things.
