sPlat - Synthesis on Pollen Limitation and Terrestrial biodiversity
The majority of flowering plants rely on pollinators for their reproduction and human perturbations to the environment disrupt plant-pollinator interactions and lead to widespread pollen limitation of plant reproduction. Such effects are expected to be most pronounced in regions with high terrestrial plant biodiversity, where competition for pollinators is strongest. We will quantitatively synthesize hundreds of pollen supplementation experiments and provide a global assessment of how regional factors and human perturbations correlate with the magnitude of pollen limitation.
