  • Pollination Workshop underway at College of Natural Resources

    Presenting on fliesA two-day workshop (30th April – 1st May) on pollination is underway at College of Natural Resources (CNR), Lobeysa. Introduction of pollination and its research needs were discussed with the students, lecturers of College of Natural Resources and officials from the National Plant Protection Centre and the National Biodiversity Centre. Around 40 participants were introduced to the valuation of pollination and research needs in pollination by bees and hoverflies in forested and agricultural lands of Bhutan. Participants were also introduced to the field-based taxonomical research in the agricultural land around Lobeysa. The main aim of the workshop is to encourage and support Bhutanese in studying the pollinators in the context of changing climate. The workshop also aims to develop baseline on the pollination in Bhutan, and publish research papers and field guides, while enhancing the capacity of Bhutanese researchers. Few interested participants were identified to carry out research on pollination including the taxonomy of the pollinators such as bees and hoverflies.

    Resources persons from the Naturalis Biodiversity Center, Netherlands, Dr. Vincent Kalkman, Dr. John Smit and Dr. Theo Zeegers presented on the current status of pollination in Bhutan and future research projects on pollination. The workshop was organized by the National Biodiversity Centre (NBC) in collaboration with College of Natural Resources and is funded by Naturalis Biodiversity Center.
