Abstract

Costa Rica, the ‘Rich Coast' of Central America, will be the venue for IBRA's Sixth Conference on Tropical Bees: Management and Diversity. This beautiful and friendly country with its diverse tropical forests and scenic volcanoes is an excellent place for anyone interested in tropical bees and apiculture. Bee diversity is fascinating in Costa Rica and the beekeeping systems are, because of pre-columbian history and dynamic recent developments, of particular interest.
