Summary

Bees and other flower-visiting insects are experiencing periods of food shortage, particularly in intensively managed agricultural landscapes in Europe. As part of the Danish project EcoServe we therefore investigate whether increased richness of selected herbaceous species in organic hay fields acts as a floral resource thus enhancing abundance and biodiversity of pollinators.
