    B Darvill
    Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, School of Biological Sciences, University of Southampton, Biomedical Sciences Building, Basset Crescent East, UK
    Mol Ecol 15:601-11. 2006
    ..These results suggest that surviving populations of this rare insect suffer from inbreeding as a result of geographical isolation. Implications for the conservation of social hymenopterans are discussed...
  2. ncbi Extremely low effective population sizes, genetic structuring and reduced genetic diversity in a threatened bumblebee species, Bombus sylvarum (Hymenoptera: Apidae)
    J S Ellis
    Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, School of Biological Sciences, University of Southampton, Bassett Crescent East, Hampshire, SO16 7PX, UK
    Mol Ecol 15:4375-86. 2006
    ..We suggest that populations now existing on isolated habitat islands were probably linked by stepping-stone populations prior to recent habitat loss...
  3. ncbi Decline and conservation of bumble bees
    D Goulson
    School of Biological and Environmental Sciences, University of Stirling, Stirling, UK
    Annu Rev Entomol 53:191-208. 2008
    ..Suggested measures include tight regulation of commercial bumble bee use and targeted use of environmentally comparable schemes to enhance floristic diversity in agricultural landscapes...

    Amy H Easton
    Biological and Environmental Sciences, School of Natural Sciences, University of Stirling, Stirling, Scotland
    PLoS ONE 8:e54819. 2013
    ..It remains to be seen if the repellent effect on insects occurs when neonicotinoids are present in real flowers, but if so then this could have implications for exposure of pollinators to neonicotinoids and for crop pollination...
  5. pmc Impacts of inbreeding on bumblebee colony fitness under field conditions
    Penelope R Whitehorn
    School of Biological and Environmental Sciences, University of Stirling, Stirling, UK
    BMC Evol Biol 9:152. 2009
    ..Mating, hibernation and colony founding took place in the laboratory. Once colonies had produced 15 offspring they were placed in the field and left to forage under natural conditions...

    B Darvill
    University of Stirling, Stirling FK9 4LA, Scotland
    Mol Ecol 21:3988-95. 2012
    ..Estimated total triploid frequencies were higher in B. muscorum than in B. jonellus, perhaps due to the greater dispersal range of the latter species. Implications for the conservation of rare social hymenopterans are discussed...

    Mol Ecol 14:1811-20. 2005
    ..These data suggest that even among the most common British bumblebee species, significant differences in fundamental aspects of their ecology exist, a finding that should be reflected in management and conservation strategies...
