Biodiversity around apple orchards attracts more bee species for pollination
Why biodiversity is economically important for the production of food - life short science news

Orchards surrounded by agricultural land are visited by a few bee species, and this leads to relatively poor pollination and production, a new study shows.

In contrast, natural habitats in the immediate vicinity harbor a rich diversity of bee species that each help to pollinate.

Thus, this study shows the importance of biodiversity for productivity in agriculture.
