Beekeepers are more and more involved in studies on honey bees and the environment. With their special equipment and knowledge, they can participate in scientific studies by providing data or samples. Several such investigations have resulted in scientific publications and innovations have been made to offer beekeepers a low-threshold participation. These innovations include non-invasive sampling matrices and methods to analyse samples taken by beekeepers. The involvement of beekeepers also includes some limits, most of which are typical for environmental studies or other studies involving citizens, like sample logistics or data protection issues.
