Global pollinator declines: trends, impacts and drivers.
Pollinators are a key component of global biodiversity, providing vital ecosystem services to crops and wild plants. There is clear evidence of recent declines in both wild and domesticatedExpand

Parallel Declines in Pollinators and Insect-Pollinated Plants in Britain and the Netherlands
Despite widespread concern about declines in pollination services, little is known about the patterns of change in most pollinator assemblages. By studying bee and hoverfly assemblages in Britain andExpand

Landscape effects on crop pollination services: are there general patterns?
Pollination by bees and other animals increases the size, quality, or stability of harvests for 70% of leading global crops. Because native species pollinate many of these crops effectively,Expand

Ecological and life-history traits predict bee species responses to environmental disturbances
Abstract The ability to predict the responses of ecological communities and individual species to human-induced environmental change remains a key issue for ecologists and conservation managersExpand

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

Declines of managed honey bees and beekeepers in Europe
Summary Growing evidence indicates that European managed honey bees are in decline, but information for Europe remains patchy and localized. Here we compile data from 18 European countries to assessExpand

Ecological intensification: harnessing ecosystem services for food security.
Rising demands for agricultural products will increase pressure to further intensify crop production, while negative environmental impacts have to be minimized. Ecological intensification entails theExpand

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 theExpand

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
