    Welcome to the The International Commission for Plant-Pollinator Relationships (I.C.P.P.R.), the objectives of the Commission are to:

    1. Promote and coordinate research on the relationships between plants and pollinators of all types. This research includes studies of insectpollinated plants, bee foraging behaviour, effects of pollinator visits on plants, management and protection of insect pollinators, bee collected materials from plants e.g. nectar and pollen, products derived from plants and modified by bees.
    2. Organise meetings, colloquia or symposia related to the above topics and to publish and distribute the proceedings.
    3. Collaborate closely with national and international institutions interested in the relationships between plants and bees, particularly those whose objectives are to expand scientific knowledge of animal and plant ecology and fauna protection.
