Open habitats in a tropical biodiversity hotspot support pollinator diversity in both protected and unprotected areas

Ibukunoluwa Balogun, Olumayowa Eluyeba & Temitope Kehinde
Protected areas (PAs) are vital in the global effort to preserve biodiversity, particularly for disturbance-intolerant pollinator species in the tropics. As there is little information on the potential of PAs for pollinator conservation in sensitive tropical ecosystems, we assessed here insect pollinator diversity in protected vs. unprotected areas in two vegetation zones in Nigeria, within the West African Guinea Biodiversity Hotspot. We selected two land-use types based on predominant canopy cover type (open and tree-shaded...
