The Institute of Urban Ecology (IUE) at Ƶ has undertaken the User Network for Insect Biology in the Urban Garden (UNIBUG) citizen science research project. 



User Network for Insect Biology in the Urban Garden


About unibug

The overall goal of UNIBUG is to engage community volunteers in learning about the ecology of urban gardens, with a particular focus on beneficial garden insects. Our project looks at attracting predatory and parasitic insects into urban gardens as well as studying pollinators and their habitat through identifying, counting bees and monitoring bee houses.
