We examined hoverfly and flowering plant abundances at meadow and verge sites in an agricultural landscape of Czech Republic. We recorded two spatial scales for flowering plants (plot and 15 m-radius surroundings) and the whole system was studied in three study periods during summer. Hoverflies don’t distinguish meadow and verge sites and generally only follow their preferred plants.
