Factors affecting pollinators and pollination


Author(s): Dr. Matangi Mishra, Aroosa Khatoon, Shubham Asija and Sohel Seikh

Abstract: A number of factors are responsible for the pollinators and the pollination process. “In addition to honey bees, now it is known that bumble bees and other pollinators are also declining perhaps due to combined effects of pesticide use and destruction by human” (D.L. Cox et al., 2007; Cameron et al., 2011; Kluser and Peduzzi, 2007). A number of factors are responsible for the declining status of pollinators namely: climate changes, stress from pathogens, invasive species etc. “The density dependent and independent factors determine different life history traits of insects like geographical distribution, relative abundance, growth rate, overwintering, interspecific competition, number of generations” (Savopoulou-Soultani et al., 2012) and “population dynamics” (Shivanna et al., 2011). “The foraging and defensive behavior of honeybees is strongly affected by certain density independent factors i.e., temperature, wind speed, light, rainfall and humidity”.
