Pollinators' behavior is different in urban vs rural areas

🌺 The rapid urbanization of our planet is impacting pollinators and their crucial role in our ecosystem: 🏙️ As cities expand, the number of pollinators decreases, affecting the pollination of plants and the production of fruits and seeds. 🐝🌼 Learn how urbanization changes the pollinating behaviors of these vital creatures and its implications on our environment.

Let's work together to create pollinator-friendly urban spaces for a greener future! 🌱🐦

        All urban planning projects should have a section dedicated to how to support pollinators, what plants to grow, and so on...

          Pollination is a crucial ecosystem service not only in natural but also in agricultural and urban ecosystems.Urbanization affects pollinator diversity and plant–pollinator networks by changing resource availability locally and in the surrounding landscape.

            I agree that urbanisation is changing pollinators behaviour. The issue of urbanisation must be solved by either smart cities and right ways of housing in the cities. In much as we need development, we need to leave some arable land to help in balancing the ecosystem.
