    Plant-Pollinator Coextinctions and the Loss of Plant Functional and Phylogenetic Diversity Plant-pollinator coextinctions are likely to become more frequent as habitat alteration and climate change continue to threaten pollinators. The consequences of the resulting collapse of plant communities...

    Influence of Pollen Nutrition on Honey Bee Health: Do Pollen Quality and Diversity Matter? The beneficial influence of pollen availability on bee health is well-established but whether quality and diversity of pollen diets can modify bee health remains largely unknown. We therefore tested the...

    Lack of Variation at Phosphoglucose Isomerase (Pgi) in Bumblebees: Implications for Conservation Genetics Studies A goal of modern conservation genetics is to address the extent to which adaptive variation, especially for loci where polymorphism should be maintained, is affected by the forces...

    Plant Pollinator Networks along a Gradient of Urbanisation Habitat loss is one of the principal causes of the current pollinator decline. Along an urbanisation gradient comprising four types of landscape contexts (semi-natural, agricultural, suburban, urban), we set up experimental plant...

    Multiple Mating But Not Recombination Causes Quantitative Increase in Offspring Genetic Diversity for Varying Genetic Architectures Experimental studies that compared genetically diverse colonies produced by multiply-mated queens to genetically more homogeneous colonies that were produced by...
