Effective pollinator conservation requires an understanding of the range and type of habitats that different species are capable of foraging in but little is known about the factors that determine this. The overriding goal of this inter-disciplinary research environment is to address this problem by developing a general framework for predicting the habitat requirements of pollinators through their visual morphology. We will combine approaches from agricultural science, sensory biology, molecular phylogenetics and macroecological modelling to understand how the visual world of pollinators affects their ability to survive and forage in different habitat types, particularly those disturbed by human activities. The project will consist of four parallel projects: field studies of the abundance of key pollinators in agricultural and natural landscapes, controlled laboratory experiments investigating the fundamental limits of visual foraging behaviour in pollinators, detailed analyses of pollinator visual systems and the development of predictive models that investigate the morphological characteristics that best predict habitat use in pollinators. Our unique sensory biological approach to understanding habitat use and survival in pollinators, something we call 'integrative pollinator science' will provide new knowledge and insights into pollinator biology and inspiration for the broader fields of biodiversity and animal conservation.
