Bees and agriculture: a vital alliance to be preserved


-Position-

To re-establish healthy bee populations, it is essential to understand how all living organisms and environmental

elements are connected within a single ecosystem. This leads to a question: What relationship do bees have with the food

that we eat, and so with agriculture?

Animals pollinate over 80% of flowering plants. Among these animals, bees are by far the most important,

with around 25,000 different species worldwide. As they search for food, bees carry pollen from flower to flower,

making reproduction possible for the majority of plant species, both wild and cultivated. This makes bees essential to the

production of many fruits and vegetables, the life of pastures and forests and the diet of humans and domesticated and

wild animals.
