- Bee foraging ranges and their relationship to body sizeSarah S Greenleaf
Department of Plant Pathology, University of California, One Shields Avenue, Davis, CA 95616, USA
Oecologia 153:589-96. 2007..The equations we present can be used to predict foraging distances for many bee species, based on a simple measurement of body size...
- Wild bees enhance honey bees' pollination of hybrid sunflowerSarah S Greenleaf
Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ 08544, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 103:13890-5. 2006..These findings also demonstrate the economic importance of interspecific interactions for ecosystem services and suggest that protecting wild bee populations can help buffer the human food supply from honey bee shortages...
- Pollination and other ecosystem services produced by mobile organisms: a conceptual framework for the effects of land-use changeClaire Kremen
Department of Environmental Sciences, Policy and Management, University of California, 137 Mulford Hall, Berkeley, CA 94720 3114, USA
Ecol Lett 10:299-314. 2007..Developing conceptual models for MABES aids in identifying knowledge gaps, determining research priorities, and targeting interventions that can be applied in an adaptive management context...
- Landscape effects on crop pollination services: are there general patterns?Taylor H Ricketts
Conservation Science Program, WWF, Washington D C, USA
Ecol Lett 11:499-515. 2008..Quantifying these general relationships can help predict consequences of land use change on pollinator communities and crop productivity, and can inform landscape conservation efforts that balance the needs of native species and people...
