Pollinator behavioural responses to grazing intensity

  title={Pollinator behavioural responses to grazing intensity},

It has been suggested that intensive grazing management, aimed at maintaining plant diversity, might not be the optimal choice to preserve diversity of insects in semi-natural pastures. In the present study the behaviour of flower visiting insects was studied in two semi-natural pastures in central Sweden. Two grazing treatments were established with one grazed from mid-May, “continuous”, and one grazed from mid-July, “late”. Flower visitors were followed for 9 weeks in summer 2003 in 7 pairs… CONTINUE READING
