A global quantitative synthesis of local and landscape effects on wild bee pollinators in agroecosystems.
Bees provide essential pollination services that are potentially affected both by local farm management and the surrounding landscape. To better understand these different factors, we modelled the… Expand
Delivery of crop pollination services is an insufficient argument for wild pollinator conservation
There is compelling evidence that more diverse ecosystems deliver greater benefits to people, and these ecosystem services have become a key argument for biodiversity conservation. However, it is… Expand
Impacts of coffee agroforestry management on tropical bee communities.
Though it is undoubted that tropical bees are influenced by habitat composition, few studies have investigated the relative importance of both local and landscape-level habitat parameters in… Expand
Contrasting bee foraging in response to resource scale and local habitat management
It is hypothesized that two main factors drive the foraging patterns of native and exotic species: food resource availability and habitat composition. These factors are particularly relevant for… Expand
Resource diversity and landscape-level homogeneity drive native bee foraging
Given widespread declines in pollinator communities and increasing global reliance on pollinator-dependent crops, there is an acute need to develop a mechanistic understanding of native pollinator… Expand
Urban land use limits regional bumble bee gene flow
Potential declines in native pollinator communities and increased reliance on pollinator‐dependent crops have raised concerns about native pollinator conservation and dispersal across human‐altered… Expand
A Review of Ecosystem Services, Farmer Livelihoods, and Value Chains in Shade Coffee Agroecosystems
Cultivation, processing, and consumption of coffee are dynamic processes that connect coffee farmers and agro-ecosystems with coffee drinkers spanning the globe. As a cash crop, coffee cultivation… Expand
Shade Coffee: Update on a Disappearing Refuge for Biodiversity
In the past three decades, coffee cultivation has gained widespread attention for its crucial role in supporting local and global biodiversity. In this synthetic Overview, we present newly gathered… Expand
The future of urban agriculture and biodiversity-ecosystem services: Challenges and next steps
Urban landscapes are spatially constrained, and vegetative land uses that provide beneficial ecosystem services are difficult to maintain. Urban agricultural (UA) systems appear in many forms – from… Expand
A multi-scale assessment of hurricane impacts on agricultural landscapes based on land use and topographic features
Agricultural systems are increasingly vulnerable to the effects of extreme climate events. Yet strategies to reduce risk and vulnerability have not been greatly explored. Here, we examine the… Expand
