How to Adapt Beehive To climATe Change


The HABeeTAT project aims to contribute to the maintenance of beekeeping activity in the face of major threats posed by climate change. It will test the possibilities of protecting bee colonies against specific local climatic changes by searching for strategies of adaptation of beehive and apiary characteristics. This project will build scientific knowledge on the beehive by combining two different methodologies: empirical surveys from beekeepers, and experimental modelling from numerical modeling of the thermal behavior of hives on-site, using data on wood, hive construction materials, thermics and climate change.
