Was wondering if anyone has had any contact with Coloss?
“The mission of COLOSS is to improve the well-being of bees (in particular the western honey bee Apis mellifera) at a global level.” http://www.coloss.org/mission
It seems like it might be worth talking to them about standardising some stuff?
“When we say “Temp sensor at the top of a Warre” We all mean it to be positioned X cm below the top of the hive”
When we use sensors we calibrate them to X
It seems likely that electronic monitoring of hives will have increasing prominence over the coming years, and that by having that conversation early we could all reach some common assumptions and have them documented in the official ‘bee book’ for researchers: http://www.coloss.org/beebook
