Formal project reports and book chapters


Science In Defra

At the end of every Defra funded research project, the NBU team involved completes a Science In Defra (SID5) final report. Each SID5 contains full details about the background of the project, how the work was carried out, the results obtained, the statistical analyses, and the conclusions drawn. The report is then submitted to Defra for review, pending publication by Defra.

To search the Defra website for project reports please use this link [LINK NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE], or see our Bee Research Projects pages.
