Symposia Series: “The Case for Protocol Standardization: Monitoring”
June 28 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am PDT
The kickoff symposium tackles protocols, namely which data points we request citizen scientists and research partners collect when monitoring free-living nests and untreated colonies in apiaries, the two types of naturally surviving honey bee populations that we’re studying. Intending to become the world’s greatest repository of data on survivors, Honey Bee Watch strives to standardize protocols to a great degree, then share them far and wide in order to ensure parity of data globally. But how do you converge monitoring protocols from projects with different research goals, that have spanned varying time frames, that do or do not involve citizens, and with origins in countries as diverse as Serbia, Ireland, UK, US, and beyond?

The Symposia series is organized by Honey Bee Watch.
