Apis florea Fabricius (Apidae, Bangladesh)

A database BeeFTadauchi is a specimen database based on the bee collection collected in foreign countries except for Central Asia by Prof. Osamu Tadauchi. The countries include Korea, China, Thailand, Indonesia, Nepal, Bangladesh, Iran and those of Europe (Austria, Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland, Lichtenstein, Spain, Portugal, France, Belgium, England, etc) . The total number of specimens at present is 21,170 (September 29, 2015). Each record consists of 26 items according to a format of the Darwin Core of the Global Biodiversity Information Facility(GBIF), such as scientific name, country, collecting locality, collecting date, collector, etc. The specimen data collected by Osamu Tadauchi from Central Asia and Japan were recorded in the other database files, BeeCAsia and BeeELKU, respectively.

The related bee database files are as follows:
HANABACHI (Image database based on the Japanese bees)
TABR (Reference database based on troipical Asian bees)
ELKUType (Type specimen database based on the collection preserved in the Entomological Laboratory, Kyushu University)
BeeFukuda (Bee specimen database based on Dr. Fukuda’s collection)
BeeCAsia (Bee specimen database based on the collection collected in Central Asia by the Kyushu University Expedition)
BeeELKU (Bee specimen database based on the collection preserved in the Entomological Laboratory, Kyushu University, except for Prof. Tadauchi’s foreign collections)
ABeeBOL (DNA Barcode Database of Asian Bees)

The BeeFTadauchi is managed by a text database management system SIGMA.
The BeeFTadauchi file is supported by a Grant-in-Aid for Publication of Scientific Research Results (Head Investigator: Osamu Tadauchi) and a Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research(A) (Head Investigator: Osamu Tadauchi) from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, and a Grant-in-Aid for Biodiversity Database from Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) (Head Investigator: Osamu Tadauchi).
