Data from: Limitation of complementary resources affects colony growth, foraging behavior, and reproduction in bumble bees

Fabrice Requier, Kim K. Jowanowitsch, Katharina Kallnik & Ingolf Steffan-Dewenter
Resource availability has been disturbed for many organisms in agricultural landscapes including pollinator species. Abundance and diversity in flower availability benefit bee populations, however, little is known about which of protein or carbohydrate resources may limit their growth and reproductive performance. Here, we test the hypothesis of complementary resource limitation using a supplemental feeding approach. We applied this assumption with bumble bees (Bombus terrestris), assuming that colony growth and reproductive performance should depend on the...
