BEEMS – Monitoring Bee Diversity in Natural Systems

Bees provide essential pollination services to natural ecosystems and agricultural crops. The constant decline in the population of bees, both farmed (Apis Mellifera) and wild, requires monitoring, management and restoration programs based on environmental indicators.

In this context, aerial photogrammetry can be an effective monitoring and analysis tool both in economic and time terms.

This is the focus of the BEEMS (Monitoring Bee Diversity in Natural Systems) project, supported by the bilateral agreement for scientific cooperation between Italy and Israel, which involves the Geomatics team of the Polythecnic of Turin – DIATI together with pollination ecologists and soil chemists from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
