Claims that declines of pollinator species richness are slowing down in Europe revisited

(Pensoft Publishers) Changes in pollinator abundances and diversity are of major concern. A recent study, adopted in the recent UN IPBES Pollination Report draft summary, inferred that pollinator species richnesses are decreasing more slowly in recent decades in several taxonomic groups and European countries. Having conducted a more careful interpretation of these results, Dr.
