  • A Brazilian information network on bees.
  • Antonio Mauro Saraiva
  • Universidade de São Paulo

CODATA Workshop – 8-10 May 2007

Atibaia - Brazil

about pollinators
About Pollinators
  • > 80% of flowering plants are pollinated by animals.
  • > 1/3 of the world\'s major food crops.
  • $200 Billion annually in value for global agriculture.
  • 10,000 bee, 500 bat, and 300 hummingbird species in the Americas
  • There is growing evidence that pollinators are declining in the Americas and globally.
initially a web based monitoring system
Initially: a web-based monitoring system
  • Focus on automatic data acquisition
colony monitoring network
Colony monitoring network
  • Temperature, Humidity
  • Flight activity
    • Bee counter
  • thermoregulation
a step ahead an information system
A step ahead: an information system
  • Knowledge and information on bees need to be
    • organized, preserved, shared, published(!)
  • Target audience
    • scientists, beekeepers, students, teachers, policy makers, agricultural producers…
      • Increase public awareness on the importance and uses of pollinators
    • in Portuguese and other languages
webbee information system
WebBee: information system
  • Contents:
      • Bee species data: biology, taxonomy, distribution,
      • Hives, equipment & numerical data
      • Beekeeping, plants visited
      • Bibliography
    • Dynamic web pages: database
    • Multimedia: texts, images, videos
  • Web–based: easy access and sharing

  • Objectives
    • Develop WebLabs on two ecosystem services
      • Pollination
      • Photosynthesis
      • Research / Education / Awareness raising
      • Use / develop content / applications for the Advanced Internet
slide16

High resolution images of bees

  • Database
    • high resolution images (several Mpixels)
slide17

High resolution images for identification and classification

Instead of this image

  • It may replace the real specimen
      • which is usually sent by mail for comparison
use of video via internet on r e on pollination
Use of Video via Internet on R&Eon Pollination

Objectives:

  • Research
    • Allow remote access to field or lab experiments
    • Facilitate collaboration between researchers
    • Use an Advanced Internet for real-time video streaming: HD video
  • Education / training / decision making
    • Make available materials on biology/ keeping of bees
    • Reach wider audience
    • “commodity” Internet – SD videos
database video
Database - Video
  • Research and educational videos
    • SD video(640x480)
      • easy access via Internet
    • behavioral patterns of each species.
    • students, researchers and beekeepers can recognize bee species
