Is it a bee? No, it’s SUPER-B

by Simon Terry 27.04.16

If you are interested in bees, particularly European Bees, and want to expand your knowledge, you might be interested in a training course being run by the SUPER-B project in Marseille, France, next month.

The European Bee Course is designed primarily for botanists, conservation biologists, pollination ecologists, and other biologists whose research, training, or teaching responsibilities require a greater understanding of bee taxonomy.

It will focus on the classification and identification of more than 70 bee genera present in Europe, but the general information is applicable to global bee fauna.

Lectures will include background information on the biology of bees, their floral relationships, their importance in maintaining and/or improving floral diversity, inventory strategies, and the significance of oligolecty (taxonomic floral specialisation).

The course will also include field trips to demonstrate collecting and sampling techniques; and associated lab work to explain specimen identification, preparation and labelling. It runs from 16-20 May 2016. You can get further details from Denis Michez (denis.michez@umons.ac.be).

Simon Terry is a Communications Officer at EFSA
