Abstract:
Due to the existing vegetation of our landscape, its state and development can be seen as a fundamental factor influencing the nutritional basis of bee colonies (Apis mellifera carnica). Because of the different plant compositions, the land use type is of particular importance. It is unclear to which extent different land use patterns in Vienna have an impact on bee colonies and how much certain land use structures are used by the insects. To answer these questions, four Viennese apiaries were analyzed on pollen, surrounding land use and vegetation. On the basis of a hermeneutical approach, the results were then interconnected and processed in several ways. As an Outcome, different land use types were evaluated and rated. Furthermore, principles of open space designs of various land use patterns were described. As it turned out, the form of occupance of green space by the residents or occupiers has significant impact on their floral resources. Following these Results, possible measures to preserve and enhance landscape as a food source for honey bees were introduced, which serve as guidance for landscape planning and urban planning activities.
