The citizen science approach is based on mutual exchanges between citizens and scientists at each step of a project and is a potentially valuable approach as applied to sentinel landscape initiatives. In this presentation, CIFOR and IRD scientist Edmond Dounias gives an overview of the citizen science approach and its application to sentinel landscape initiatives, giving the example of bee-keeping in terms of bees and climate change: sentinels of the environment.

This presentation formed part of the CRP6 Sentinel Landscape planning workshop held on 30 September – 1 October 2011 at CIFOR’s headquarters in Bogor, Indonesia. Further information on CRP6 and Sentinel Landscapes can be accessed from http://www.cifor.org/crp6/ and http://www.cifor.org/fileadmin/subsites/crp/CRP6-Sentinel-Landscape-workplan_2011-2014.pdf respectively.
