Dr. Hevia’s oral presentation centered on the benefits to pollinator communities and sunflower seed set measured in the 2017 campaign. Finally, Ms. Mota’s poster presentation centered on observation data from the Burgos field site, reporting a number of interesting effects of the flower meadows on pollinator communities.
