Data from: Establishment of wildflower fields in poor quality landscapes enhances micro-parasite prevalence in wild bumble bees

Niels Piot, Ivan Meeus, David Kleijn, Jeroen Scheper, Theo Linders & Guy Smagghe
The current worldwide pollinator decline is caused by the interplay of different drivers. Several strategies have been undertaken to counteract or halt this decline, one of which is the implementation of wildflower fields. These supplementary flowers provide extra food resources and have proven their success in increasing pollinator biodiversity and abundance. Yet such landscape alterations could also alter the host–pathogen dynamics of pollinators, which could affect the populations. In this study, we investigated the influence...
