Prevention of plant pollen is usually considered a matter of pest control. However, the number of flowering plants has decreased. How do you translate the number of plant pests? How does pollen itself play an important role in reducing the need for pesticides?
The presentation depicts the overlapping link between pollen and nectar and parades by unsung insect heroes.
