Competition between wild pollinators and honeybees - what do we know?
The risk of wild bees being negatively affected by competition with honey bees has become a much debated issue in Sweden as well as in other European countries. A new report from the Center of Environmental and Climate Science (CEC), commissioned by the Swedish Board of Agriculture, synthesizes the current scientific knowledge on this subject.
The main author of the new report is Sandra Lindström, PhD in agronomy and former researcher at CEC, who now works as an investigator and biodiversity expert at the Swedish Board of Agriculture. Sandra will present the report's conclusions on resource competition between wild bees and honeybees, describe measures that can reduce the risk of such competition and talk about ongoing northern European initiatives in this area.
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!
