Editorial: Bees, pollination and the environmental movement
Dr Lawrence J Connor
Global concerns over the environment have focused attention on a wide range of issues, including contamination of the physical and living worlds and the loss of plant and animal species. Special attention has been justifiably placed on the decline of unique habitats and biomes, such as the world's rain forests. All bee species undoubtedly benefit from the environmental movement. Any effort to maintain species diversity, reduce pesticide hazards to bees, and maintain the diversity of plant species will benefit flower-visiting bees.
