- 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...
