Pollinators have an essential role in the reproduction of plant species in natural areas and in agriculture. Knowledge about their spatial and temporal distribution is of extreme importance for biodiversity conservation and sustainable use, and can be generated from records of species occurrence obtained from field inventories. Online availability of those data is increasing rapidly and...
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 st...

Bombus terrestris bee (Bt) is an efficient pollinator, providing important ecosystem services in Europe and surroundings, where it is native. Colonies of Bt have been largely created for agricultural pollination and internationally marketed, including in countries outside their natural range. Bt has, deliberately or accidentally, escaped from greenhouses confinement to natural environme...
