Research title: Community and privately-owned urban (green) spaces as Nature-based Solutions
My research aims to investigate urban green spaces as Nature-based solutions to increase pollinator diversity. Specifically I will be focusing on gardens and allotments and how their management practices and floral communities can impact plant-pollinator network structure. As part of this I will also be investigating which pollinators play key roles in the pollinator networks, and whether honeybees dominate these interactions. I will monitor plant pollinator interactions through the use of both cameras and the collection of specimens.
