World Bee Day Special Topic Hub

SSRN’s World Bee Day Special Topic Hub provides a curated view into early-stage research addressing bees and their role in our environment. The sophisticated pollination and real-life impact of bees, which fuels crop development and drives forward the life and growth cycles of whole ecosystems, play a big role in keeping people and the planet healthy. Yet, bees and other pollinators are facing challenges from human activities in areas such as habitat loss, pesticide use, and climate change. This special topic hub presents insights from many disciplines that may inform the ongoing conversation on understanding bees, their importance, and how humans can better protect bees, and in doing so, the overall environment.

SSRN, Elsevier’s world-leading platform devoted to the rapid worldwide dissemination of early-stage research, is committed to advancing societal progress through sharing quality knowledge. Research on SSRN is free to download and upload.
