plant-pollinator interactions, spatio-temporal changes, invasive species, conservation and functional ecology

My research interest is focused on pollination biology. I am interested in the ecology of plant-pollinator interactions, primarily the plant functional trait effects on the foraging behaviour of insect pollinators. My purposes to understand better the spatio-temporal dynamics and to use better sampling methods in field works of pollinators. Recently, I study the role of non-native invasive plant species on the native plant and the related pollinator insect communities; the beekeepers traditional knowledge on bee-pastures; and the dependencies of pollinator communities in agricultural, urban and semi-natural habitats.
