Picture: The photo shows a scientist in the laboratory holding an insect with tweezers over the opening of a plastic tube. The scientist is wearing blue latex gloves. Laboratory materials can be seen in the background.

The aim is to understand how land-use-induced changes in the diversity and composition of flowering plants affect the interactions between plants and bees. Data will be collected on the following parameters:

  • Diversity and abundance of wild bee species throughout the year
  • Nutritional and health status of collected bee species in relation to the LUI
  • Bee-flower interaction networks
  • Chemical composition of pollen of bee-visited bee plant species

Picture: The photo shows a clipboard lying on the grass of an unmown meadow in the sunshine. Documents are attached to the clipboard. A pen and a sealed centrifuge tube are on the form above. In the background of the picture, a fenced climate measuring station, individual tall shrubs and, on the horizon, meadows and forests can be seen under a blue sky with clouds.

Cooperations are projects financed by the cooperation partners’ own funds and thus financially independent of the DFG-funded infrastructure priority program ‟Biodiversity Exploratories (BE)”. They complement the BE with further interesting research content on biodiversity research and in return benefit from the infrastructure of the Biodiversity Exploratories.
