The Xerces Society Guide to Attracting Native Pollinators
By The Xerces Society
Growing environmental stresses are pushing many of our native pollinators to the edge of ecological collapse. The affects of habitat loss, fragmentation, alien species, climate change and the use of pesticides are negatively impacting pollinators in substantial and rapidly dangerous ways. Unlike the charismatic European honey bee, pollinators native to North America are poorly understood by the general public, and thus, have received little attention from the national media. Attracting Native Pollinators: The Xerces Society Guide to Protecting North America’s Bees and Butterflies serves as an essential bridge over the chasm of media silence, providing a well organized introduction to the benefits, habits and hardships of native bees, wasps, butterflies, moths, flies and beetles.
Organized in four parts (Pollinators and Pollination, Taking Action, Bees of North America, and Creating a Pollinator-Friendly Landscape), Attracting Native Pollinators provides a thorough introduction of pollinators and pollination biology, while promoting strategies to benefit native pollinators through strengthening the quality of habitat and land management. Attracting Native Pollinators provides a vital framework for strengthening the understanding and conservation of our imperiled pollinators, and proves to be an excellent guide and reference book for land owners, managers, landscapers, farmers, gardeners and students alike. • 372 Pages.
