New grant on pollination research

A part of our group in a café after a full day of pollination research.

Our pollination research has been supported by a PRIMUS grant – a support from the Charles University for young researchers. For the next three years, we will thus be working on a project entitled “Crucial drivers for pollination networks organisation: Effects of altitude, latitude and habitat fragmentation” with Robert as PI. We have planned to supplement our current projects reconstructing pollination networks along various gradients of environmental conditions by additional data in both Czechia and Cameroon. It will allow for much better generalisation of our results and answer more general questions. The good news is even better as they caught us during our fieldwork in the Zelezne hory Mts. In the next few months, we will open few calls for new students working on the project – from undergrads, through PhD students to a postdoc. If you are interested, contact Robert or keep an eye on this page.
