Wildbienen Id BienABest
Bienen im Feld bestimmen
In order to identify wild bees, this unique bee app was developed as part of the BienABest research project. The project was funded by the BMU + BfN.
This wild bee identification app contains the most common and striking 101 wild bee species in Germany.
The app is characterized by close-ups of the individual bee species. The photos were taken by Hans Schwenninger with great technical effort using focus stacking and then released. Another highlight is the identification key specially created for this app by experienced taxonomists (Erwin Scheuchl, Hans Schwenninger), with which even laypeople can intuitively and easily reach their goal by simply selecting individual features. For quick determination, you can choose from coulors, size and shape, among other things.
The app is available in German language.
