ENVINET, Bees buzz around ENVINET SARA
The spectroscopic monitoring station “SARA” is integrated in an international research and school project HOBOS (HOneyBee Online Studies) in the Biocenter of the University of Wuerzburg in Germany. ENVINET provides a solution to analyze the influence of radioactivity on the bees’ behavior.
The Concord Consortium , A Partnership with HOBOS
We are honored to announce a partnership with the HOney Bee Online Studies (HOBOS) Program, directed by Prof. Dr. Jürgen Tautz at Universität Würzburg, Germany, to promote science education through the application of IR imaging technology.
Industrial Laser Solutions for Manufacturing: Bee in your bonnet?
Since 2006, bee expert Profssor Jürgen Tautz has been developing HOBOS (Honey Bee Online Studies) as a novel and interactive teaching concept that involves tagging the honeybees with codes that only a laser can make.
ScienceWise Magazine* / ***ScienceAlert, Bee line
For an insect with a brain the size of a seed, the honeybee has a most impressive list of skills. Its amazing navigational abilities, such as scoring perfect landings, or performing complex flight manoeuvres, have helped the advancement of flight technology, including unmanned aircraft vehicles (UAV).
Livebetter Magazine, HOBOS: A UNESCO-Awarded Learning Project
The goal of the United Nations’ Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (2005-2014), for which UNESCO is the lead agency, is to integrate the principles, values and practices of sustainable development into all aspects of education and learning. This educational effort will encourage changes in behavior that will create a more sustainable future in terms of environmental integrity, economic viability and a just society for present and future generations. In 2009 the HoneyBee Online Studies (HOBOS) Project at Wuerzburg University in Wuerzburg, Germany became an “official UNESCO project.”
Bee Craft, The HOBOS Project at The Wallace High School
Early in January this year, I had a visit from a member of the Institute of Northern Ireland Beekeepers, Sam Baird, who brought with him a copy of Jürgen Tautz’s book, The Buzz about Bees. I was enthralled by the fantastic photography in that book which set out in the most wonderful colour the lifecycle of the honey bee. We chatted about Professor Tautz’s BEEgroup in Wurzburg and the new HOney Bee Online Studies project – HOBOS.
The New York Times, Observatory. The Buzz of Bees, Though Benign, Halts Caterpillars' Munching
It’s a tangled web that nature weaves. The typical ecosystem is filled with organisms that are linked in some way — one preys on the other, or lives off the other parasitically, or depends on the other in some way. Honeybees and caterpillars, however, have little to do with each other, even though they often exist in the same ecosystem.
