Bees for pollination: conclusions and recommendations of the EC workshop on 'Bees for pollination' held in Brussels 2-3 March 1992

, : Bees for pollination: conclusions and recommendations of the EC workshop on 'Bees for pollination' held in Brussels 2-3 March 1992. Bee World 75(1): 46-48

This workshop was held to discuss the present situation regarding bees as pollinators of crops and native plants in Europe and the future pollination needs of European agriculture. Twenty pollination scientists representing each EC member state presented contributions organized into 3 sessions: pollination and plant-insect relationships; present and future use of pollinating insects; agriculture and insect pollination.

Plant-pollinator interactions have usually been researched in flowers that have fully opened. However, some pollinators can visit flowers before full opening and contribute to fruit and seed sets. In this paper, we researched the pollination biolo...

Cool weather at blossom time increased the life of apple flowers but slowed down pollen tube growth rate and shortened the time during which the ovules were fertile. In cool weather hives should be set in the orchard as soon as the first flowers o...

Experimental pollination units were constructed of expanded polystyrene foam 2.54 cm thick, and the foraging activities of bees from colonies housed in these units (a) and control colonies from standard hives (b) were compared at 2 localities. The...

A new index for pollen load analysis which reflects floral constancy at the pollinator population level and therefore may be an estimation for pollination probability (PPI) is proposed. This index is the product of the mean proportion of conspecif...
