Pollination experiment: insect traits

Understanding the interplay of local and landscape-scale drivers of plant-pollinator interactions is crucial to maintaining pollination services in urban environments. The data contains plant-pollinator interactions changed across two independent gradients of local flowering plant species richness and landscape-scale urbanisation level (proportional area of impervious surface within a 500-m radius) in 24 home gardens in the city of Zurich, Switzerland. The data also contains the trait values (tongue length, body size and activity time) of all visiting wild- and honeybees.
