The Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (EMBRAPA) is carrying out bee monitoring research in the Amazon region to point out the effects of climate change in the process of these insects disappearing. The study is following the gray uruçu bee species which has the strength to carry a two-centimeter microchip used to collect data on the animals without disturbing flight.

With the information obtained by the device, researchers compared it with climate data in the Amazon. Bee life is essential to the region's ecosystem in the spread of plant species for pollination.
