Tiit Teder was the head of research that was recently published in the journal Agriculture, Ecosystems & Environment (https://doi.org/10.1016/j.agee.2020.106961). The study shows how important the presence of non-productive habitats is for key beneficial organisms - pollinators. The abundance and species richness of bumblebees were higher at the edges of arable fields adjacent forests compared to the edges of arable fields adjacent to open habitats. In addition, the proportion of forest cover in the surroundings of a site further increased the number of bumblebee individuals and species.
