Higher temperatures may result in fewer bees, scientists claim

Bees Threatened by Climate Change

The dramatic demise of Britain’s bee population has been variously linked to everything from pesticides, habitat loss and even parasitic mites. Climate change can now be added to the list of threats, after new research revealed that an increase in global temperature could be disrupting the “synchronisation” that has evolved over millennia between bees and the plants they pollinate.

Researchers have found that the temperature increase resulting from climate change has brought forward the flowering date of the early spider orchid along with the “first flight” of newborn solitary bees. Full Story Here
