Nutrition as a critical link between biodiversity and bee health
The aim of the cooperation is to examine how the composition and diversity of food resources affect the nutritional status and health of wild bee species.
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
