At the Spot-a-Bee Citizen Science project, the researchers of Cardiff University and the University of Glasgow, UK want to find out what plants, trees and shrubs are important for bees in city and town parks and gardens. People can help survey bee-friendly plants towns, cities and villages! If you spot a bee, use your mobile to take a picture of the plants they’re buzzing around and upload the spot in the Citizen Science app.
The Spot-A-Bee app allows you to observe and document any flowers, shrubs, climbers or trees and the bees on them. Additionally, it contains useful information on those plants and the most common bee species in the UK.
As a bonus, the researches behind Spot-A-Bee also want to understand how planting in urban spaces might affect the production of urban honey.
