Diversity of Insect Pollinators Visiting Boerhavia Diffusa L.(Nyctaginaceae) A Common Weed in Virudhunagar Block, Tamil Nadu
Insect pollinators are ecologically important in the ecosystem and essential for pollination, and to maintain valuable plant regeneration. The plant-pollinator relationships not only enhance the
Effect of temperature & humdity on population dynamics of insects’ pest complex of cotton crop
The current study was directed to investigate the effect of temperature and humidity on insect pest complex of cotton. This study was carried out on the farmer field of a farmer of MouzaMehraywala


Yearlong association of Apis dorsata and Apis florea with flowering plants: planted forest vs. agricultural landscape
The current study may serve as a baseline to track the degradation in ecosystem service of cross pollination and making new conservation strategies at local scale while future research should focus on tempo-spatial variations in foraging preferences, floral constancy and effect of foraging competition on crop pollination in different ecological regions of Pakistan.

Role of insect bees in the pollination of Prosopis cineraria (L.) Druce(Leguminosae, Subfamily Mimosoideae) in Rajasthan
Bees for pollination biology of Prosopis cineraria flowering at the end of during dry season are examined and wasps and flies were the most numerous visitors and are likely to play a significant role in pollination.
Pollen Deposition Is More Important than Species Richness for Seed Set in Luffa Gourd
Functional group diversity in terms of pollen deposition explained even more of the variance in seed set than did the species richness, making it the most important trait of bee species for predicting the crop reproductive success.
Nesting habits, floral resources and foraging ecology of large carpenter bees (Xylocopa latipes and Xylocopa pubescens) in India
The review suggests that Xylocopa bees in general and X. pubescens in particular are bivoltine in habitat, where there are inadequate floral resources, provided there are adequate resources throughout the year in a habitat.
Floral constancy in bees: a revision of theories and a comparison with other pollinators.
This paper reviews different theories on flower constancy, providing evidence in favor and against each model, and then discusses the possible scenario in which each behavior can have an ecological advantage.

The Bees of the World
In this extensive update of his definitive reference, Charles D. Michener reveals a diverse fauna that numbers more than 17,000 species and ranges from the common honeybee to rare bees that feed on
Flower constancy in insect pollinators: Adaptive foraging behaviour or cognitive limitation?
The observed behavioural flexibility suggests that flower constancy is a successful foraging strategy given the insect’s own information about different foraging options.
Floral choices by honeybees in relation to the relative distances to flowers
Honeybees (Apis mellifera L.) were presented with a series of binary choices between two equally rewarding yellow or blue artificial flowers, and maintained high degrees of constancy to one flower colour.
