Sociometric data, such as worker number and nest size are essential for understanding how colonies develop but are rarely collected. Even Apis mellifera, the most intensively studied social insect, has never received a broad-scale sociometric study. To help fill this gap, we monitored four honey bee colonies living in large observation hives from when they began as swarms (July 2012), to when they died (January 2014). We tracked multiple colony parameters, including worker and drone populations, comb area and use, swarming rate, and colony death. Each colony’s life history is described through its founding, ergonomic, and reproductive stages.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/46198"/> <dcterms:issued>2016-11</dcterms:issued> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-07-02T09:10:16Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Ostwald, Madeleine M.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Ostwald, Madeleine M.</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
