our farmland is not biodiverse at all
Are there specific plants that help with biodiversity? Trees. Species?
Question: what are the most beneficial species for biodiversity? Do they have to be native?
I did a four day course on bumblebees and I was hooked
- 25,000 species solitary bee
- 250 species bumblebee
- 7 species honey bee
- 243 species solitary bee
- 25 species bumblebee
- 1 species honey bee
Willow and dandelions for early bees.
