Good to know about wild pollinators
Do you know how many pollinator species there are - in Sweden, in the world? Or how much bees contribute to crop pollination? This seminar series starts of with some basic facts about pollination, the organisms that contribute to this ecosystem service, their value for us humans and their functions in nature - all focusing on wild pollinators and based on state-of-the art scientific knowledge. The presentation also summarizes the threats that face pollinators today, and the most important knowledge gaps. You will also have the opportunity to ask all the pollinator-related questions you have wondered about but not yet found answers to.
Todays speaker is Maj Rundlöf, researcher at the Department of Biology at Lund University.
This seminar is part of the seminar series "How to benefit wild pollinators - what does research say?", co-arranged by the County Administration Scania and Lund University (via the thematic collaboration initiative LU Land, the Centre for Environmental and Climate Science and the Department of Biology).
The aim of this seminar series is to enhance the collaboration between research and society around issues related to wild pollinators and pollination.
The seminars will be held in Swedish, and everyone working with or being interested in wild pollinators or pollination is welcome!
