Welcome to www.beebreed.eu, an online database and website of the Institute for Bee Research, Hohen Neuendorf, Germany .

In the menu option "Breeding Values", you can retrieve the breeding values of queens without registration. You will find general information about breeding value estimation as well as specifics of our coding system.

Under "Breeding and Performance Data", registered breeders can record the studbook data of their queens. For this, you will need access authorisation, which only the chairman of your association can grant.
