Job alert: Post-doc position open: Modeling crop pollination services
The Gund Institute for Ecological Economics seeks a postdoctoral researcher to develop rigorous and practical models that predict crop pollination services across agricultural landscapes. The position is part of a new collab...

Article alert: Historical changes in northeastern US bee pollinators related to shared ecological traits
PNAS (2013) doi: 10.1073/pnas.1218503110Bartomeus, I, JS Ascher, J Gibbs, B Danforth, D Wagner, S H Hedke, R WinfreePollinators such as bees are essential to the functioning of terrestrial ecosystems. However...

A new research article “A global quantitative synthesis of local and landscape effects on wild bee pollinators in agroecosystems”, with lead authors Christina M. Kennedy, from the Urban Wildlife Institute, Lincoln Park Zoo, C...

Article alert: Managing for adaptive capacity: Thinning improves food availability for wildlife and insect pollinators under climate change conditions
Canadian Journal of Forest Research (2013) doi: 10.1139/cjfr-2012-0345Andrew R. Neill, Klaus J. PuettmannA trait based approach was developed to assess impacts of management practices on the adaptive capacity...

Article alert: Plant-Pollinator Interactions over 120 Years: Loss of Species, Co-Occurrence and Function
Science (2013) doi: 10.1126/science.1232728Burkle LA, Marlin J, Knight TMUsing historic data sets, we quantified the degree to which global change over 120 years disrupted plant-pollinator interactions in a t...
