Biology and Ecology of Bess Laboratory (LABEA)

Universidade Federal da Bahia (UFBA)

Founded in 1996 by Prof. Blandina Felipe Viana, LABEA hosts the activities of the Grupo de Pesquisa em Ecologia de Comunidades de Visitantes Florais, registered at Diretório de Pesquisa of CNPq, and the activities of Rede de Pesquisa Sobre Polinização em Agroecossistema (POLINFRUT). The studies in LABEA focus in biology and ecology of interactions between plants and floral visitors in natural and agricultural systems, in the causes of pollinators decline, and in the search for sustainable management practices that joins conservation of pollinators and food production.
