RT 17/3 BEESYN 1: Identification of the impact of chemistry on honey mortality in Belgium, taking into account the interactions of these products with other possible causes of mortality. Ghent University
This study aims to answer the following questions:
- what are the colonies' chemical contamination levels and what is the origin of this contamination (both by integrating data already available and contributing with new exposure data)?
- to what extent may such a contamination determine the colony's fate when put in its context: its genetic, pathogen/parasite load, nutritional state, climate conditions and land use around it ...
