Tree‐pollinator interactions are important ecosystem services that are threatened by global warming and climate change. Very few investigations have focused on fruit‐tree pollination interactions in the tropics. In this paper, we analyze knowledge gaps proposed by the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) with special reference to the tropics and associated with (1) the effects of climate change on plant‐pollinator interactions and (2) pollinator diversity and population attributes within the context of nature conservation.
