Weather data
A large number of automatic weather stations has been implemented in the frame of the BIOTA AFRICA project by the Namibian National Botanical Research Institute (NBRI) and the Group "Biodiversity, Evolution and Ecology" (BEE) of the University of Hamburg. The website offers hourly updates of data and graphs of a large number of weather parameters.

Bees of Kakamega Forest

In total, about 242 bee species are known from Kakamega Forest and the surrounding agricultural areas in Western Kenya. Some of the species still need to be confirmed. They belong to the families Apidae (~92), Halictidae (~76), Megachilidae (~72), Colletidae (~6). Before the BIOTA- investigations, only 24 bee species were known for the area. Thus, most of the species are new records for the area.
