Flower handling behavior and abundance determine the relative contribution of pollinators to seed set in apple orchards

Abstract

A growing body of evidence suggests that wild bees play an important role in agricultural pollination. It is very difficult, however, to accurately quantify the contribution of wild bees relative to honeybees in most crop systems. We quantified the relative contribution of honeybees and wild bees to the pollination of an economically important, insect… (More)
