Work experience
Although planting campaigns have been tried and continue to be used, basic information on wild bees which pollinate plants in desert and semi-desert areas is insufficient. Wild bees are very important insects for the pollination of plants in arid areas. I therefore conducted five surveys as a chief-investigator to accumulate basic information on wild bees to assist planting campaigns in Central Asia (Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan) and northwestern China from 2000 to 2004 under the project titled “Field Studies of Wild Bee Fauna and Pollination Biology for Combating Desertification and Planting Campaign in Asian Arid Areas”. The aims of the project were as follows: 1) To search and discover useful pollinating insects in semi-desert areas, 2) To collect wild bees in semi-desert areas and to conduct taxonomic and biogeographical studies, and 3) To study pollinating and nesting behaviors of the useful bees.
