Mary F Coffey and Seamus Meade work in UL/Teagasc on bee research as part of the National Apiculture Programme. The pollen project (CSI pollen) outlined below is not part of the Apiculture programme, but as identifying the floral sources of pollen collected by our bees is important to all beekeepers I feel Irish beekeepers should be given the opportunity ot particpate in this international programme, especially since it is an initiative to get beekeepers directly invovled in science and data collection, hence the name Citizen Scientist Investigation …CSI pollen. In the article attached I am requesting beekeepers to particpate in project
I am attaching a short introductory paragraph AND a word document: entitled –
This is a worthwhile project and participation by as many beekeepers as possible across the island of Ireland will provide useful data to be included in this international project.
More details on the project are given in an article in next months edition.
