Conservation ecology of bees: populations, species and communities

  title={Conservation ecology of bees: populations, species and communities},
  author={T{\'o}mas E. Murray and Michael Anton Kuhlmann and Simon Geoffrey Potts},
Recent concerns regarding the decline of plant and pollinator species, and the impact on ecosystem functioning, has focused attention on the local and global threats to bee diversity. As evidence for bee declines is now accumulating from over broad taxonomic and geographic scales, we review the role of ecology in bee conservation at the levels of species, populations and communities. Bee populations and communities are typified by considerable spatiotemporal variation; whereby autecological… CONTINUE READING
