NSF Pollinator Decline Workshop (Hosted by NCEAS)

Principal Investigators:

James H. Cane

Workshop to Explore Causes and Extent of Declines Among Native Invertebrate Pollinators: Detection, Evidence and Consequences Insects, particularly native bees, are the predominant and essential pollinators of many wild and agricultural plants in North America. For many flowering plants, they move pollen between plants while foraging, thereby contributing to: 1) fruit set and size, 2) seed production and viability, and 3) seedling vigor, while 4) enhancing genetic diversity of plant populations. Is this essential ecosystem service in jeopardy?... more
