Pollinator-friendly management does not increase the diversity of farmland bees and wasps
In order to reverse declines in pollinator populations, numerous agri-environment schemes have been implemented across Europe, predominantly focused on increasing the availability of floralExpand

Targeted agri‐environment schemes significantly improve the population size of common farmland bumblebee species
Changes in agricultural practice across Europe and North America have been associated with range contractions and local extinction of bumblebees (Bombus spp.). A number of agri‐environment schemesExpand

Providing foraging resources for solitary bees on farmland: current schemes for pollinators benefit a limited suite of species
1. Changes in agricultural practice across Europe and North America have been associated with range contractions and a decline in the abundance of wild bees. Concerns at these declines has led to theExpand

Narrow pollen diets are associated with declining Midwestern bumble bee species.
Many species of bumble bee (Bombus) have declined in range and abundance across Europe, the Americas, and Asia, whereas other species have persisted and remain common and widespread. One explanationExpand

An assessment of historical and contemporary diet breadth in polylectic Andrena bee species
Abstract The loss of key forage plants and a narrow pollen diet have both been implicated in the decline of wild bees over the past 70 years. These ideas have been studied extensively in recent yearsExpand

Global warming and plant–pollinator mismatches
The mutualism between plants and their pollinators provides globally important ecosystem services, but it is likely to be disrupted by global warming that can cause mismatches between both halves ofExpand

Wild Bee Pollen Diets Reveal Patterns of Seasonal Foraging Resources for Honey Bees
Western honey bees (Apis mellifera) are dominant crop pollinators, and access to summer forage is a critical factor influencing colony health in agricultural landscapes. In many temperateExpand
