DAD-IS: Integrating Pollinators
DAD-IS is the Domestic Animal Diversity Information System hosted by FAO. DAD-IS (http://dad.fao.org/) is the official tool recognized by the Convention on Biological Diversity for monitoring the status of genetic diversity in global livestock breeds. In addition, it is a communication and information tool for implementing strategies for the management of animal genetic resources (AnGR). It provides the user with searchable databases of breed-related information and images, management tools, and a library of references, links and contacts of Regional and National Coordinators for the Management of Animal Genetic Resources. It provides countries with a secure means to control the entry, updating and accessing of their national data.

The Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, at its recently completed 16th session, requested FAO to consider including domesticated honey bees and potentially other pollinators into DAD-IS. This survey is a first step in this process. Its intent is to amass data on the status of world-wide honey bee and pollinator populations and understand regional concerns and management.

Directions:

This survey is 28 questions long and divided into three sections: General Information, Honey Bees and General Pollinators. Some questions are repeated between the Honey Bee and General Pollinators sections, please answer with respect to the animals in question. Please complete to the best of your ability, and any follow up questions or comments can be directed to kennedyhalvorson@hotmail.ca, paul.boettcher@fao.org, or roswitha.baumung@fao.org.
