Bee #1

a. Only one type of pollinator visited this plant.

b. The pollinator did match my predictions of this plant.

c. 2 pollinators * 4=8. 8/ 1 flowers that I looked at= 8 pollinators per hour

d. My site was lower.

e. 1)Yes, I think it can be a proxy for another type of ecosystem variable. If you have more plants that are producing good oxygen, you'll have better air quality.

2) Some plants can be additionally pollinated by wind. Some if a bee were to not make enough pollinators in the hive.
