3015Relative importance of pollinators
- Nov 15, 2013Hi, everyone. I'm hoping to tap your collective wisdom on this beautiful Friday morning.
How do you speak about the "relative importance" of the 4 major pollinating groups (bees, butterflies and moths, flies, and beetles)? I can explain the importance of pollen foraging and floral constancy in bees, but people are asking for statistics to compare the groups.
High-level comparisons can be misleading, for sure. I'll point out that even if beetles aren't the most efficient pollinators, they are (of course) critical to the plants they are pollinating.-Crystal
