Pollination Survey

Assessment of pollination will be performed using pre-existing standardised procedures and published protocols to be adapted if necessary.

Methods to include:

  • hand pollination of the crop under study and use of sentinel plants to assess fruit set.

In semi-natural habitats, pollination potential will be assessed by:

  • measuring pollinators (activity and abundance).

The measurements of the pollination potential will be completed in all case studies by measuring the floral resources, to assess the general pollination service provided at landscape scale.
