Insect Pollinators Initiative datasets

Datasets arising from the nine projects of the UK Insect Pollinators Initiative (2010-2015). The Insect Pollinators Initiative (IPI) was funded by Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), the Scottish Government and the Wellcome Trust, under the auspices of the Living With Environmental Change (LWEC) partnership. The aim of IPI was to promote innovative research aimed at understanding and mitigating the biological and environmental factors that adversely affect insect pollinators. The projects covered the response of pollinators to land-use, landscape, pests and pathogens, pesticides and their role as crop pollinators.
