‘An estimated 20,000 flowering plant species, upon which many bee species depend for food, could be lost over the coming decades unless conservation efforts are stepped up'(The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) warned in their recent Global Bee Colony Disorders and other Threats to Insect Pollinators report).
Wild flowering plants have evolved over millennia to support their pollinators with perfect forage rewards in return for pollination, and have the ability, through diverse gene-pools, to evolve and survive changing climatic conditions.
