Goldilocks’ quarter-hectare urban farm: An agent-based model for improved pollination of community gardens and small-holder farms

Many of the fruit and vegetable crops grown on small urban allotments and farms require pollination from a variety of local insects. In this study, the authors use computer simulations to explore how insect species’ different tendencies to visit single flower species when they forage, influence crop pollination of small plots.
