Pollination and other ecosystem services produced by mobile organisms: a conceptual framework for the effects of land-use change.
Many ecosystem services are delivered by organisms that depend on habitats that are segregated spatially or temporally from the location where services are provided. Management of mobile organismsExpand

Plant reproductive susceptibility to habitat fragmentation: review and synthesis through a meta-analysis.
The loss and fragmentation of natural habitats by human activities are pervasive phenomena in terrestrial ecosystems across the Earth and the main driving forces behind current biodiversity loss.Expand

Wild Pollinators Enhance Fruit Set of Crops Regardless of Honey Bee Abundance
Honeybees Can't Do It Alone The majority of food crops require pollination to set fruit with the honeybee providing a pollination workhorse, with both feral and managed populations an integralExpand

Forest Fragmentation, Pollination, and Plant Reproduction in a Chaco Dry Forest, Argentina
In a fragmented, dry subtropical forest in northwestern Argentina, we com- pared pollination levels, fruit set, and seed set among small ( 2 ha) fragments, and continuous forest in 16 plant speciesExpand

Invasive Mutualists Erode Native Pollination Webs
Plant–animal mutualisms are characterized by weak or asymmetric mutual dependences between interacting species, a feature that could increase community stability. If invasive species integrate intoExpand

Long-Term Global Trends in Crop Yield and Production Reveal No Current Pollination Shortage but Increasing Pollinator Dependency
There is evidence that pollinators are declining as a result of local and global environmental degradation [1-4]. Because a sizable proportion of the human diet depends directly or indirectly onExpand

A meta-analysis of bees' responses to anthropogenic disturbance.
Pollinators may be declining globally, a matter of concern because animal pollination is required by most of the world's plant species, including many crop plants. Human land use and the loss ofExpand

The Global Stock of Domesticated Honey Bees Is Growing Slower Than Agricultural Demand for Pollination
The prospect that a global pollination crisis currently threatens agricultural productivity has drawn intense recent interest among scientists, politicians, and the general public. To date, evidenceExpand

Expanding the limits of the pollen-limitation concept: effects of pollen quantity and quality.
Pollination commonly limits seed production, as addition of pollen to stigmas often increases fecundity. This response is usually interpreted as evidence that plants' stigmas receive too few pollenExpand
