Distribution and pollination services of wild bees and hoverflies along an altitudinal gradient in mountain hay meadows

Kevin Baumann, Julia Keune, Volkmar Wolters & Frank Jauker
Extensively managed and flower rich mountain hay meadows, hotspots of Europe’s biodiversity, are subject to environmental and climatic gradients linked to altitude. While the shift of pollinators from bee to fly dominated communities with increasing elevation across vegetation zones is well established, the effect of highland altitudinal gradients on the community structure of pollinators within a specific habitat is poorly understood. We assessed wild bee and hoverfly communities, and their pollination service to three plant...
