About this book


This book discusses the interplay between pollinators, agriculture, and the environment. The book is an unique blend of pure and applied science placed in the broader human social context.  It deals with basic and applied aspects of pollination biology. The chapters on pollination energetics, climate change, pollinator decline, biochemical basis of plant-pollination interaction, pollinators as bioindicators of ecosystem functioning, consequences of introduced honeybees upon native bee communities and  capacity building are innovative and provide a base for future insights into pollination biology. The  book will be useful to pollination biologists, students, teachers, scientists of agriculture, animal behaviour, botany, conservation, biology, ecology, entomology, environmental biology, forestry, genetics, plant breeding, horticulture, toxicology, zoology, seed growers and seed agencies.

The author is a well known bee scientist, honoured with several national and international awards. He has published over 200 original research papers, authored 10 books  and visited Switzerland, Poland, South Korea  and several other countries  as special invitee.
