Information Portal

Welcome to Bees for Development's Information Portal. Here you will find a vast range of bee-related information, much of it unique to this site. We have organised the information within the 12 themes shown left, each containing up to three levels of increasingly detailed information. We also guide you to a wealth of relevant papers, articles and books.

Please use the Search box - right - to search for specific countries or topics, which may not be apparent from the list of topics below.

As far as possible, items are provided here as articles within the website or as external links. However, for some references you may have to approach a library or other source.

This Information Portal represents a labour of love for us here at Bees for Development. Everything here is available free as part of our continuing endeavour to promote bees and beekeeping as means for improving the livelihoods of people in developing countries. We are continuously adding texts and welcome your suggestions for information to include here.

Do browse our Store even if you do not intend to buy. Listed are many useful, low print run, and hard-to-obtain books and other media, and most have informative reviews.
