Role of pesticides in bee decline: scientists call for evidence-driven debate
An international panel of scientists is today calling for an evidence-driven debate over whether a widely used type of insecticide is to blame for declines in bees and other insect pollinators. An EU ban on certain neonico...

Early-flowering crops may increase bumblebee numbers for late-flowering crops: STEP research makes it into the latest Science for Environment Policy
The value of insect pollinators cannot be underestimated. They are essential for the production of many crops and help improve yields and quality. However, there is a worrying decline in the numbers of pollinators and it is ...
