The Effectiveness of Varroa destructor Infestation Classification Using an E-Nose Depending on the Time of Day. Assessing the acute toxicity of insecticides to the buff-tailed bumblebee (Bombus terrestris audax). Urbanization and increasing agricultural intensification have destroyed and fragmented many natural habitats (Figure 1a) that pollinators rely on for forage and nesting resources (Kleijn and Raemakers 2008; Garibaldi et al. Insects show an astonishing taxonomic diversity and are abundant in almost all environments across the globe (ca. Differential migration rates of co‐occurring plants and insects as a result of changing climatic conditions (Schweiger et al. (1) Improve understanding of basic pollinator ecology, Identify key pollinators of dominant and rare wild plant species (eg Kleijn and Raemakers 2008), Establish a causal link between floral resource availability and pollinator abundance/diversity at landscape scales, Improve measurement of pollinator species movement and pollination success among patchily distributed plants (eg Carvell et al. Low input sustainable agriculture: A viable climate-smart option for boosting food production in a warming world. By feeding on bee hemolymph, V destructor suppresses host immunity and increases host virus load (Yang and Cox‐Foster 2005; Highfield et al. See Web‐References for associated citations (indicated by superscripts). Enhancement of pollinator nutrition will help buffer populations against the combined detrimental effects of nutritional stress, pathogen infection, and pesticide exposure (Mayack and Naug 2009; Alaux et al. Insecticide exposure during brood or early-adult development reduces brain growth and impairs adult learning in bumblebees. 2010; Rader et al. The roles of non‐production vegetation in agroecosystems: A research framework for filling process knowledge gaps in a social‐ecological context. Vulnerability of Crop Pollination Ecosystem Services to Climate Change. This is achievable (see Dicks et al. Globally, insects supply pollination services, valued at US$215 billion in 2005, to about 75% of crop species and enable reproduction in up to 94% of wild flowering plants, Pollinator populations are declining in many regions, threatening human food supplies and ecosystem functions, A suite of interacting pressures are having an impact on pollinator health, abundance, and diversity, Interdisciplinary research and stakeholder collaboration are needed to help unravel how these multiple pressures affect different pollinators and will provide evidence‐based solutions, Current options to alleviate the pressure on pollinators include establishment of effective habitat networks, broadening of pesticide risk assessments, and the development and introduction of innovative disease therapies. 2010) that may be exacerbated by intensified land use and climate change. Annual Review of Environment and Resources. Journal article 619 views. Mortality due to pests and pathogens (Figure 1d) dominates explanations of honey bee decline in the developed world. Such ecological changes could further affect human health, given that tropical plants are the source of many commercial nutritional supplements and could possess undiscovered medicinal properties as well (Eilers et al. Landscapers working in urban areas should include initiatives for “re‐wilding” green spaces and promoting wildlife‐friendly gardening and beekeeping to better support pollinators (Stelzer et al. Threats to an ecosystem service: pressures on pollinators. Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment, Volume: 11, Pages: 251 - 259 Integrating new understanding of the interactions between pathogens, toxins, and nutrition across levels of biological organization and ecological processes up to global scales (Figure 2) will better inform models that will enable the prediction of changes in pollination services under different scenarios. The ecosystem services provided by social insects: traits, management tools and knowledge gaps. (a) Land‐use intensification; (b) climate change; (c) alien species; (d) pests and pathogens (Varroa destructor on a honey bee). Forest proximity rather than local forest cover affects bee diversity and coffee pollination services. In general, low connectivity between habitat remnants is likely to reduce population sizes and increase extinction likelihoods of pollinators that are poor dispersers or habitat specialists (Warren et al. 2009), Improved taxonomic capacity through molecular systematic and DNA barcoding initiatives (eg Global Biodiversity Information Facility, International Barcode of Life Project collaboration). 2010). 1998; Potts et al. food security The resulting interrelated environmental pressures threaten global biodiversity and jeopardize the provision of crucial ecosystem services. 2013). 2011). 2002; Carvalheiro et al. 2009). Changes in policies and practices aimed at slowing or even halting pollinator losses will require information and data acquired from professional and citizen‐science initiatives worldwide (WebTable 1) to be exchanged through closer collaboration between scientists, conservationists, farmers, industry, and governments (Moritz et al. Sublethal neonicotinoid exposure can impair brain function (Palmer et al. Against the background of future population growth, predicted rapid urbanisation and associated anthropogenic pressures, there is much greater potential in Africa for current and future loss of plant and pollinator biodiversity. 2009; Brittain et al. We then suggest integrated research approaches and list several questions that need to be addressed to better understand the many threats facing insect pollinators (also see Panels 2 and 3). The Varroa destructor mite is the primary vector of many viruses (Picornavirales) implicated in honey bee colony losses (Le Conte et al. For instance, a better understanding of how V destructor alters honey bee gene expression to reduce immunity (Yang and Cox‐Foster 2005) will aid in the exploration of immune responses to different pathogens (Alaux et al. Future scenarios of land-use-cover effects on pollination supply and demand in São Paulo State, Brazil. Cross-infectivity of honey and bumble bee-associated parasites across three bee families. Green arrow = pesticide–pathogen–nutrition interactions at individual or colony scales; orange arrow = climate change–habitat interactions at population or species scale. 2012) and vital as we move toward integrated approaches to landscape management, which balance provisioning (eg food and timber supply) and other ecosystem services (eg pollination, pest regulation, water purification) to improve sustainable resource security. Lists. To avoid non‐target and multiplicative impacts, pesticide risk assessment protocols must incorporate a greater range of pollinator taxa (Scott‐Dupree et al. Multiple pressures that interact with biological processes at scales from genes to ecosystems threaten pollinator health, abundance, and diversity. The neonicotinoid–N ceranae interaction also reduces the activity of an enzyme used by worker bees to sterilize colony food stores and broods and to combat pathogen transmission (Alaux et al. A spatially extended model to assess the role of landscape structure on the pollination service of Apis mellifera. 2007).

This open access research output is licenced under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial … Advances and perspectives in selecting resistance traits against the parasitic mite Varroa destructor in honey bees. Bee community response to local and landscape factors along an urban-rural gradient. How can the extent of pollinator decline be determined? Chronic bee paralysis as a serious emerging threat to honey bees. Strips of prairie vegetation placed within row crops can sustain native bee communities. Systematic and standardized monitoring of pollinators within and across regions, Greater focus on developing regions undergoing rapid anthropogenic changes (Freitas et al. Threats to an ecosystem service: pressures on pollinators. Urban areas as hotspots for bees and pollination but not a panacea for all insects. Any queries (other than missing content) should be directed to the corresponding author for the article. Insect pollination is a high-profile example. 2001; Bommarco et al. As these biochemical mechanisms appear to be sensitive to variations in diet, changes in beekeeping practices or land‐use management that affect bee nutrition have the potential to reduce or enhance the honey bees' ability to detoxify pesticides. The challenge, during strategic planning at the landscape level, will be to devise appropriate incentives for land managers to engage with one another to ensure an effective spatial and temporal network of food and nest sites for pollinators. Threats to an ecosystem service: pressures on pollinators Threats to an ecosystem service: pressures on pollinators Vanbergen, Adam J; Initiative, the Insect Pollinators 2013-06-01 00:00:00 Insect pollinators of crops and wild plants are under threat globally and their decline or loss could have profound economic and environmental consequences. We show that a complex interplay between pressures (eg lack of food sources, diseases, and pesticides) and biological processes (eg species dispersal and interactions) at a range of scales (from genes to ecosystems) underpins the general decline in insect‐pollinator populations. 2001; Bommarco et al. Pollinators are a key component of global biodiversity, providing vital ecosystem services to crops and wild plants. 2007). Furthermore, pathogens associated with colony mortality vary spatially (Higes et al. This new knowledge could be refined by the addition of data on the nutritional value of mass‐flowering crops (Westphal et al. Manuela Franco de Carvalho da Silva Pereira. Detecting varroosis using a gas sensor system as a way to face the environmental threat. 2011), may eliminate even these generalists. ... Alphabetically Earth & Environmental Sciences. There is a clear link, however, between pollinator diversity and sustainable crop pollination. We assess the implications of pollinator decline for ecosystem functioning and the services such insects deliver, and present a synthesis of recent advances in understanding of the individual and interacting impacts of different pressures on pollinators. Furthermore, these types of crops often supply a short, synchronous pulse of floral resources that do not provide adequate nutrition for pollinators, especially those species with longer activity periods (Pleasants 1980). Natural habitats support many wild pollinators, providing a resilient and complementary pollination service that increases crop yields (Kremen et al. 2010; Rader et al. This potential for negative effects to cascade from individuals through the colony was confirmed by studies demonstrating that previous exposure to sublethal doses of neonicotinoid led to higher N ceranae infection levels (Pettis et al. A One-Health Model for Reversing Honeybee (Apis mellifera L.) Decline. 2010), combined with stochastic events or disease (Cameron et al. Predicted thresholds for natural vegetation cover to safeguard pollinator services in agricultural landscapes. These impacts vary according to species traits, … Advances and perspectives in selecting resistance traits against the parasitic mite Varroa destructor in honey bees. Landscape‐scale surveys of wild bees and butterflies show that species richness tends to be lower where pesticide loads and cumulative exposure risk are high (Brittain et al. 2011; Cameron et al. 2011) or facilitate (McKinney and Goodell 2011) native plant pollination (Figure 1c). 2010b; Mao et al. pressures (eg pesticides and pathogens) that have been considered.

Number of times cited according to CrossRef: Bee abundance and soil nitrogen availability interactively modulate apple quality and quantity in intensive agricultural landscapes of China. 2011; Carvell et al. While these different threats to pollinators have long been recognized (eg Kearns et al. Globalization and climate change may extend these impacts to developing regions, increasing the translocation of plants, pollinators, pests, and pathogens worldwide. 2010b), so loss of food sources will increase individuals' vulnerability to infection (Figure 1e) and the effects will be amplified at colony or population scales. Neonicotinoid use on cereals and sugar beet is linked to continued low exposure risk in honeybees. N 2009). The italicized text indicates areas where some research has been published but is restricted in taxonomic or geographic scope. Evidence on the multiple threats to pollinators must be included in joint decision making by government agencies, non‐governmental organizations, and agrichemical, food production, and retail industries. 2010). Individual behavioral changes resulting from combined field‐level exposure to a neonicotinoid and pyrethroid insecticides both reduced bumblebee colony productivity and increased the chances of colony failure (Gill et al. 2010; Gill et al.
