This paper presents the development of a weblab, a web-based virtual laboratory, for research and education on native bees. Its aim is to help researchers perform experiments remotely using the resources available on an Advanced Internet network and its services. Another objective is to increase the knowledge of the society about the biology and environmental importance of native bees by publishing relevant information for various audiences, from students to beekeepers. The work is part of the Vinces project, which integrates the TIDIA project framework from FAPESP whose goal is the development of technologies and applications for the advanced internet by means, among others, of virtual laboratories (weblabs).
