B-GOOD Online Honey Bee Course: Introduction to honey bee research and modern beekeeping
Successful bee research and practice requires a sound understanding of the biology of these creatures, coupled with a general knowledge of factors threatening their health worldwide. We invite you to explore these topics with the help of researchers from our project!
This course will cover different aspects of honey bee’s fundamental biology, such as their ecology and evolution. Additionally, a virtual overview of various beekeeping practices will be given to introduce students to the work with honey bees in the field. Finally, a strong emphasis will be provided on the main stressors affecting these organisms, together with the latest developments in the research and practice that aims at better understanding how to mitigate such issues.
