The buzz about pesticides
Bees, the most important pollinators of our crops, are in trouble. All over the world, their populations are decreasing and scientists want to know why. In this video, Nigel Raine and Richard Gill introduce us to the bumblebees they study at Royal Holloway near London. Their experiments show that two commonly used pesticides affect foraging behaviour and brood development, making bumblebee colonies more likely to fail.
Identifying key knowledge needs for evidence-based conservation of wild insect pollinators a collaborative cross-sectoral exercise.
The priority knowledge needs and the process of agreeing them are described in this publication
