Meeting the pollinators: importance, decline and perspectives

Registration for this event is now closed. Please send an email to event@list.lu for any further information.

The decline of pollinators in Europe is a major ecological and economical issue. Several European countries have begun to estimate this decline and its causes in order to develop effective conservation measures targeting pollinators. Some of them have already created national action plans for their protection (e.g. Switzerland, UK). What is the state of knowledge, and what could be developed and/or improved in Luxembourg?

Objectives

The aim of this conference is to present LIST’s studies and expertise on pollinators by broaching different aspects:

  • State of play of existing knowledge and monitoring programs of wild pollinators in Luxembourg
  • Honey bee monitoring in Luxembourg
  • Potential influence of regional climate change effects to pollinator species and pollination activity
  • Case study on the decline of bumblebees in a neighbouring country: Belgium
