SENRGy – BEE MORPHOMETRICS

BANGOR UNIVERSITY

Imported honey bees from mainland Europe are thought to have diluted the genetic make-up of the British bee, rendering it less well adapted to the climate and environment. Scientists at Bangor have developed a method for beekeepers to increase their chances of breeding more robust bees in the UK. The method allows beekeepers to identify mating areas where released virgin queens are more likely to encounter better environmentally adapted male bees.
