Pollinating insects are not as put off by cities and urban sprawl as many people believe.
Researchers comparing historical data with more recent records found that sites across England had seen declines in pollinator species richness in the past century.
But the research also showed that urban landscapes may not be as bad for the insect communities as has previously been thought.
Sites with an increased level of urbanisation around them actually showed smaller declines in pollinator diversity.
