Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue aims to explore the diverse and interconnected relationship between the environmental factors, management practices, and well-being of bees and other insects. Bees, as critical pollinators, play a vital role in ecosystem health, as well as in food availability, quality, and security. Understanding the impacts of environmental factors and management practices on these essential creatures, as well as other wildlife insect pollinators, is crucial for sustainable conservation efforts and ecosystem preservation.

We invite researchers and experts to contribute original research articles, reviews, and perspectives that shed light on the following topics related to bees (but not limited to):

  • Pesticide exposure and its effects on bees;
  • Land use and habitat loss;
  • Climate change and phenological shifts;
  • The impacts of management practices on the health and productivity of bees;
  • Environmental impacts on bees pollinator health and hive product quality;
  • Biodiversity conservation and insects corridors;
  • Ecotoxicology and risk assessment.

We anticipate that this collection will provide valuable insight into the impacts of environmental factors and management practices on bees and other wildlife pollinators. Ultimately, we aim to contribute to the development of evidence-based conservation strategies that promote the well-being and sustainability of these vital species and their ecosystems. We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Dr. Ivana Tlak Gajger
