Invest in pollinator monitoring for long-term gain  PHYS.ORG · 5 days
New research shows that for every $1 invested in pollinator monitoring schemes, at least $1.50 can be saved, from otherwise costly independent research projects. more
How flowers adapt to their pollinators  PHYS.ORG · 1 week
Flowering plants are characterized by an astonishing diversity of flowers of different shapes and sizes. This diversity has arisen in adaptation to selection imposed by different pollinators including, among others, bees, flies, butterflies, hummingbirds, bats or... more
How flowers adapt to their pollinators  SCIENCE DAILY · 1 week
The first flowering plants originated more than 140 million years ago in the early Cretaceous. They are the most diverse plant group on Earth with more than 300,000 species. Evolutionary biologists have now analyzed 3-dimensional models... more

Study finds native bees turning to polystyrene for nesting places  PHYS.ORG · 2 weeks
New Curtin University research has found that polystyrene can serve as a nesting place for native bees, which are able to exploit the man-made material for their own... more
Neonicotinoids: Despite EU moratorium, bees still at risk  PHYS.ORG · 3 weeks
Since 2013, a European Union (EU) moratorium has restricted the application of three neonicotinoids to crops that attract bees because of the harmful effects they are deemed to have on these insects.... more
On balance, some neonicotinoid pesticides could benefit bees: study  PHYS.ORG · 3 weeks
The story of neonicotinoids is growing more nuanced. Europe has banned outdoor use of three of these insecticides to protect bee populations. Two other neonicotinoids are still permitted, but little... more
