This thematic session represents an ideal platform for the timely dissemination of new findings from the Insect Pollinators Initiative to a scientific audience. It will appeal to ecologists interested in human impacts on biodiversity, interspecific interactions, host-pathogen interactions, landscape and behavioral ecology, conservation biology, and the role of biodiversity in ecosystem services.…
Experts in insect pollination (including Simon Potts, Nigel Raine, Chris Connolly, Graham Stone (all IPI funded), Lynn Dicks, Dave Goulson and James Creswell) have given spoken and written evidence to the committee of MPs on the effects of pesticides on pollinating insects. The Audit committee webpage is here: http://www.parliament.uk/business/committees/committees-a-z/commons-select/environmental-audit-committee/news/new-inquiry-insects-and-insecticides/ http://www.parliament.…
The international workshop Insect Pollinators: Linking Research and Policy, which took place on 14th February in London, was organised by the UK Science and Innovation Network in collaboration with UK partners, including BBSRC and DEFRA. The workshop brought together 59 scientists (including some IPI researchers), policy-makers and other stakeholders (including industry) from across Europe to discuss insect pollination from four different perspectives: pollinator diversity, pollinator health,…
A short article updating (for the non-specialist) on the progress of the nine research projects funded by the IPI was solicited by the British Beekeepers Association (www.bbka.org.uk). This article was first published in BBKA News in December 2012 and can be viewed here.

A new review of insect pollinators of crops and wild plants has concluded they are under threat globally from a cocktail of multiple pressures, and their decline or loss could have profound environmental, human health and economic consequences. Globally, insects provide pollination services to about 75% of crop species and enable reproduction in up to 94% of wild flowering plants. One estimate valued the pollination services provided by insects worldwide at over US$200 billion. The review,…
On Thursday 18th July 2013 the University of Bristol is pleased to be hosting a one day workshop that will bring together different sectors of the Landscape Industry on the subject of sustainable landscape research, design, and management. http://www.bristol.ac.uk/biology/research/ecological/community/pollinators/conference/landscape.html The aim is to facilitate discussion between a wide range of people working in the Landscape Industry leading to future research ideas and opportunities.…
