Title: Do we need pollinator biodiversity for pollination services?
Abstract: Dr. Winfree researches the role of pollinator biodiversity in pollination for agriculture, using small-scale experiments and ecological theory, and then scaling up to the more complicated reality of nature. Questions include: do we need to preserve pollinator diversity, or are only a few dominant species sufficient? What is the role of rare bee species in pollination?
