An update on progress of a wing morphometry study of honey bee race in Scotland

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

Many readers will have received an email invitation in July to take part in a new project to study the race of managed honey bees in Scotland. An initial enquiry was sent to SBA members open to participation in surveys, via an online questionnaire programme which we have used in the last few years for the SBA/COLOSS survey. There were just a few short questions this time, allowing for expression of interest in sampling bees for this new study and return of contact details and the postcode of the apiary likely to be used for sampling. About 1200 members were contacted, and 150 positive responses were received.
