Effects of plant protection products on honey bees

Rising honey bee mortality has been observed worldwide for several years. Besides honey bees, bumble bees and wild bees are also affected.

kAPnigin im bienenstock.jpgThe goal of our research is to elucidate the molecular effects of plant protection products on honey bees and to discover whether these effects are linked to known behavioural changes. Based on these data, the risk of plant protection products for honey bees and other pollinators can be estimated.
