Scientists are engaged in a number of field studies to investigate the decline in pollinating insects such as bumblebees. In this video, BBSRC-funded PhD student Nicolas Charlton at Bristol University examines whether agricultural land management practices are having a detrimental effect on bumblebees. Specifically, if the large swathes of land growing a single flowering species, such as oilseed rape, is providing short term benefits to some species of bumble bee at the expense of others.
