Bees: how and what to monitor to convey critical information
Abstract: While the future of agricultural ecosystems is under review, bees are labelled as good indicators of environmental quality. However, the terms of bee monitoring at a large landscape scale are largely underestimated. In Italy, we are carrying out a project to monitor honey and wild bee conditions in agro-ecosystems at the national level. The underlying structure of such an ambitious project is presented, with the first feedback and issues.
