Do nanomaterials affect pollinating insects? – New DaNa article is now available

26. March 2019

Pollen of contaminated plants or water droplets can be carriers for nanomaterials. Bees and bumblebees are potentially exposed to those nanoparticles, caused e.g. by the increased usage of nanofertilizer and nanopesticides. Do nanomaterials pose a threat to pollinators? Might they be one of the reasons of the insect species extinction? What studies have been published […]
