Honeybee Net
Posted by Darwish in blinded by science 11 years ago
Data collected from scale hives in Maryland indicate that over the last 15 years or so of data collection, the nectar flows are occuring earlier, averaging about a half a day a year  
To help track and monitor these changes, we are proposing a Honey Bee Climate Network made up of volunteers monitoring of honey bee nectar flows & plant phenology via the Internet. Over time, we can help top preserve records for long-term archiving, and expand the network to include more users/contributors and to include satellite data to establish links to the timing of nectar flow.  
A really neat project using honeybees to track the affects of climate change.
