The influence of bee diversity on the quantity and quality of pollen and produce in temperate agroecosystems
My project focuses on the relationship between bee diversity, pollen deposition, and crop yield in agroecosystems. In essence, I explore how functional and taxonomic diversity within bee communities affects the transfer of pollen to plants in cropping environments, and how variation in pollen deposition influences crop production.
