The value of pollinators for plants and humans
The pollination service that insects provide by contributing to plant reproduction is well known, and has received much attention, particularly in cultivated ecosystems where they have enormous value for both human food supply and economy. In addition, pollinators play a central role in maintaining biodiversity by pollinating wild plants.
At this seminar, Ulrika Samnegård, researcher at the Department of Biology, and Veronica Hederström, researcher at the Center for Environmental and Climate Science, will give scientific examples on the value of pollinators for cultivated and wild plants. What role does pollinator behavior play in crop pollination? Why is it important for both cultivated and wild plants that there is a diversity of pollinators in the environment? What would the Swedish midsummer look like without pollinators? These are some of the questions that will be highlighted during the seminar.
