Title: Ecosystem Services
Authors: Jadeja, Shivani
Issue Date: Jan-2010
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract:  Moving through a beautiful forest brings back memories of my school days when my classmates and I visited Jambughoda Wildlife Sanctuary, in Gujarat, for a nature camp. Through various fun activities Pranav Trivedi, a fine environmental educationalist, revealed so much about the importance and uniqueness of each creature in the forest ecosystem and their interactions and contributions that helped maintain the forests. The role of the tiny bees is especially of great importance for the survival of trees and other plants. Without these bees, our forests would not have existed the way they are now. Many plants need bees to pollinate their flowers. A plant makes beautiful and fragrant flowers to attract bees. The flowers produce nectar, which is the reward for the bees that visit the flowers. In the process of collecting nectar the bees pollinate the flowers. Only after the flowers are pollinated the plant can form seeds.
