An introduction to the roughly 4,000 different bee species found in the United States and Canada. Describes their natural history, where they live, how they gather food, their role as pollinators, and how to attract them to your own backyard.
Half of the 2,000 species of pollinators are threatened. Birds, bats, insects, and many other pollinators are disappearing, putting our entire food supply in jeopardy. This book breaks down the latest science on environmental threats and discusses the most promising conservation efforts. Efforts range from cities creating butterfly highways to citizen scientists monitoring migration.
This work looks at the human impact on plants and the animals they depend upon for reproduction. As an increasing number of species are erased by pesticides or habitat disruption, 80 percent of the human diet is threatened.
