Lots
Lot number Title Description
Lot 1
Estimates for Honey Bees
— to estimate the daily sugar/carbohydrates consumption of honey bee foragers in different environmental setup and to understand how the different environmental factors influence this consumption rate through measuring the flying time (hour/day);— to measure the pollen consumption of honey bee nurses during their entire nursing life (mg/bee/day);— to measure the fresh sugar/carbohydrates and pollen consumption of honey bee larvae during their entire development phase (mg/larvae/developmental period).More precise description of the objectives of lot 1 is available in the tender specifications.
Lot 2
Estimates for Non-Apis Bees
— to measure the pollen consumption of bumble bee workers and solitary bee adult (i.e. females) during their entire life (mg/bee/day) in field realistic conditions;— to measure the cumulative sugar/carbohydrates and pollen consumption of bee larvae during their entire development (mg/larvae/full larval developmental period).More precise description of the objectives of lot 2 is available in the tender specifications.
