The Diversity of Pollinating Diptera in South African (SA) biodiversity hotspots (DIPoDIP) project will study the biodiversity of selected true fly families (Bombyliidae, Nemestrinidae, Syrphidae, Tabanidae) in several Biodiversity Hotspots of SA.
The project will improve the taxonomy and resolve phylogenetic relationships of these families and provide basic data on their distribution, pollination ecology in order to study plant-pollinator co-evolution. This will be achieved through training of PhD, MSc and BSc students and joint fieldwork and research. The research will deliver data for Red List assessments and improved conservation strategies for these Biodiversity Hotspots and a workshop with local partners, conservationists,
Red List assessors and stakeholders will be organized to translate the results for policy making . Results will be presented to the larger public to raise awareness of the importance of these fly families in pollination, food security and nature conservation.
