Plant-pollinator interactions in human altered landscapes
Faculty of land and food systems, University of British Columbia, Canada
Link to seminar:
The majority of plant species rely on animals for pollination – an intricate relationship that has fascinated biologists for centuries. Evidence is mounting that these critical relationships are at risk due to host of human-driven disturbances, including climate change, intensification of land use through agriculture and urbanization, and species invasions. What do we know about the drivers of plant-pollinator interactions and their vulnerabilities? In this talk I will describe research going on in our lab to uncover the connections between human disturbance and plant-pollinator interactions and the potential for management schemes and policies to mitigate their decline.
