Research project: Estimating the net economic consequences of losing pollination services

Currently Active: 
Yes
Project type: 
Studentship

This project aims at estimating the economic, ecological cultural and social consequences of the decline of pollinators to human well-being.

The main objective of this research is to devise a new, rapid and scientifically robust method for the measurement and valuation of pollination services (both insect and non-insect) provided by natural and semi-natural habitat, which will assist decision making at a fine scale. This new methodology will be incorporated into the Toolkit for Ecosystem Services Site-based assessment (TESSA) and piloted in the field.

This project will also use systematic review methodologies to quantify the contribution of vertebrate pollinators on the reproductive success of plants worldwide.
