Pollinator-dependence an underestimated risk?
31.01.2013

Science for Environment Policy - Thematic Issue 36: Biodiversity, Agriculture and Health

Researchers have found that crops which rely heavily on pollinators have lower yields compared to less pollinator-dependent crops. They also have slower growth in yields and less stable yields from year to year. The results highlight the importance of managing biodiversity to support ecosystem services, such as pollination, on which much modern agriculture depends.
