Invasive Species Compendium

Detailed coverage of invasive species threatening livelihoods and the environment worldwide

Abstract

Special Issue: Insect pollinators, major threats and mitigation measures.

Abstract

This issue contains 14 papers focusing on bees, including the evaluation through different approaches of the pollination services provided by floral visitor insects in relevant cultivated plants in the Neotropics such as açaí (Euterpe oleracea), coffee (Coffea arabica), apple (Malus domestica), pear (Pyrus communis) and tomato (Solanum lycopersicum). Information is provided on stressor agents that can lead to species loss and declines in bee populations, such as invasive species, habitat loss, climatic variations and pesticides misuse.
