Abstract

The Convention of Biological Diversity and the Millennium Institute consider environmental services provided by pollinators, among them the bees, as a priority research for the 21st Century. To keep the conservation and sustainable use of pollinators means to ensure food security, sustainable agriculture and wild plant conservation. This project has 4 components: 1) evaluation of the status of the interactions among bees and plants; 2) the dynamic of population of native bees, evaluated with molecular tools; 3) problems that limit the use of bees in agriculture; 4) information technology tools for research and extension in ecosystem services with emphasis on bees as pollinators. The improvement of knowledge basis on bees focuses on reproductive aspects (individual and colonial), swarming, nest foundations, colony growth, protein diets for colony feeding, sex allocation, monitoring flight activity and bees on flowers. Trap nests will be used in order to study solitary bees diversity in fragments…. (AU)
