Parallel Declines in Pollinators and Insect-Pollinated Plants in Britain and the Netherlands
TLDR
Evidence of declines (pre-versus post-1980) in local bee diversity in Britain and the Netherlands is found and a causal connection between local extinctions of functionally linked plant and pollinator species is strongly suggested.
Predictors of Species Sensitivity to Fragmentation
TLDR
A classification of fragmentation sensitivity based on specific trait combinations is developed and the implications of the results for ecological theory are discussed.
Declines of managed honey bees and beekeepers in Europe
TLDR
The data support the view that honey bees are in decline at least in some regions, which is probably closely linked to the decreasing number of beekeepers.
MEASURING BEE DIVERSITY IN DIFFERENT EUROPEAN HABITATS AND BIOGEOGRAPHICAL REGIONS
Bee pollinators are currently recorded with many different sampling methods. However, the relative performances of these methods have not been systematically evaluated and compared. In response to
Alien species in a warmer world: risks and opportunities.
Ecological effects of invasive alien insects
TLDR
The effects caused by different insect invaders are reviewed according to their ecosystem roles, i.e. herbivores, predators, parasites, parasitoids and pollinators; the level of biological organisation at which they occur; and the direct and indirect mechanisms underlying these effects.
Safeguarding pollinators and their values to human well-being
TLDR
There are well-documented declines in some wild and managed pollinators in several regions of the world, however, many effective policy and management responses can be implemented to safeguard pollinators and sustain pollination services.
Differences in the climatic debts of birds and butterflies at a continental scale
Climate changes have profound effects on the distribution of numerous plant and animal species(1-3). However, whether and how different taxonomic groups are able to track climate changes at large
Systemic insecticides (neonicotinoids and fipronil): trends, uses, mode of action and metabolites
TLDR
A review of the global literature shows a growing body of evidence that persistent, low concentrations of these insecticides pose serious risks of undesirable environmental impacts and a global evaluation of the potential collateral effects of their use is timely.
