Increased incidence of landscape fire and pollinator declines with co-extinctions of dependent plant species are both globally significant. Fire can alter species distributions, but its effects on plant–pollinator interactions are poorly understood so its present and future role in coupled plant–pollinator declines cannot be assessed. * We...


The thematic assessment of pollinators, pollination and food production carried out under the auspices of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services aims to assess animal pollination as a regulating ecosystem service underpinning food production in the context of its contribution to nature’s gifts to...


Apple plays an important role in the livelihood of the farming community in Chitral, Pakistan. The commercial varieties of apple planted in orchards in Chitral, for example, Kala Kola (Red Delicious), Choupush (Royal Delicious), and Royal Gala, are reported to be partially or completely self-incompatible and require crosspollination for...


A decline of wild pollinators, along with a decline of bee diversity, has been a cause of concern among academics and governmental organizations. According to IPBES, a lack of wild pollinator data contributes to difficulties in comprehensively analyzing the regional status of wild pollinators in Africa, Latin America, Asia and Oceania. It may...

Simon Potts of the Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity & Ecosystem Services (IPBES) talks about the importance of pollinators in the production of everyday goods. He mentions "The Coalition of the Willing", which is a group of European countries who are taking action in the conservation of pollinators and what they offer to the world....
