Description
Bees are ecologically and economically vital pollinators whose widespread declines associated to human activities and other environmental stressors have serious consequences for our ecosystems and food security. Risks that we may be facing a pollination crisis, in which crop yields begin to fall because of colony collapses and inadequate pollination, have made research on plant-pollinator systems an absolute societal priority. While many studies in pollination ecology have focused on high-level functional associations between plant and pollinator species (within communities and ecosystems) based on field surveys, a comprehensive understanding of these complex ph...
