Climate change: bees and orchids lose touch

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review

Abstract

Spring temperature increases could differentially affect flowering times and pollinator flight periods, leading to asynchrony and reduced pollination. A specialist orchid–bee study combining herbarium, museum and field data shows that bee flight dates are advancing faster than orchid flowering, which could lead to significant future uncoupling.
