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

Sampling Bees (Hymenoptera: Apiformes) for Pollinator Community Studies: Pitfalls of Pan-trapping
With the growing interest in pollinator conservation, a need has emerged for a simple, unbiased method to reliably sample local bee faunas. One method, pan-trapping, has increased in popularityExpand

Behavior and Phenology of a Specialist Bee (Dieunomia) and Sunflower (Helianthus) Pollen Availability
The phenological relationships between nesting behavior of a specialist, solitary bee, Dieunomia triangulifera, and the flowering of its primary pollen source, Helianthus annuus, were studied for 3Expand

Spatial predictability and resource specialization of bees (Hymenoptera: Apoidea) at a superabundant, widespread resource
Abstract For reciprocal specialization (coevolution) to occur among floral visitors and their host plants the interactions must be temporally and spatially persistent. However, studies repeatedlyExpand
