A database BeeFukuda is a specimen database based on the bee collection mainly collected in Hokkaido, Japan by Dr. Hiromi Fukuda. The collection was donated to the Entomological Laboratory, Kyushu University. Dr. Fukuda studied and collected bees in Hokkaido University with Dr. Shoichi F. Sakagami and constructed a vast collection. His collection will be great important for faunal change related to global warming in the future. The total number of specimens at present is 49,671 (September 20, 2009). Each record consists of 19 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.
