Event description

This presentation will describe how modelling crop pollination services by wild bees in England can be used to inform environmental land management policy.

Our speaker, Michael Image from Atkins’ Natural Capital team, will tell us about the wild bee species that pollinate crops in England and why they are important. Then there will be a discussion about how wild bee population pollination services are modelled and how these models inform the best ways to manage land to improve crop pollination services.

Part of the CIWEM Land & Water Management digital series.

Register for 4 July 2022
