VOODOO has produced its first scientific output. On the 14 April 2021 we published a new review titled 'Pathways for Novel Epidemiology: Plant–Pollinator–Pathogen Networks and Global Change' in the journal Trends in Ecology & Evolution (TREE). This article describes how plant-pollinator network structure and species traits are thought to shape pathogen dynamics in the pollinator community and how global change may modulate species interactions, host susceptibility, and pathogen vir...

The new 2019 BiodivERsA funded project VOODOO is going to kick-off on 27 and 28 January 2020. An international team of experts from four different countries has gathered in its common goal to address the knowledge gap in the existing data for pollinators and their benefits to humankind. The project shall forward the issue by discovering how land-use (conventional intensive agriculture, rural mosaic or urban land) and alien plant species drive modifications to the availability and quality of flor...
