  4. Alternative Pollinators
    Do Pollinators Contribute to Nutritional Health? Despite suggestions that animal pollinators are crucial for human nutritional health, no studies have actually tested this claim. Here, we combined data on crop pollination requirements, food nutrient densities, and actual human diets to predict...
