    A lot of people think of Sarah Bergmann as the "Honeybee Lady," and that really annoys her. It's an attribution that might make sense at first glance, given that Bergmann is the celebrated creator of what's called the Pollinator Pathway project. So, pollinators, honeybees — what's the problem...

    Our country has lost close to half of the managed bee colonies it had in the 1940s. And what was 670 million monarch butterflies in 1997 has dwindled to a population of 150 million in recovery mode. The proof is in USDA statistics that show Florida has the most bee colonies and honey production...

    ‘Bee Hotels’ as Tools for Native Pollinator Conservation: A Premature Verdict? Society is increasingly concerned with declining wild bee populations. Although most bees nest in the ground, considerable effort has centered on installing ‘bee hotels’—also known as nest boxes or trap nests—which...

    Gloss, Colour and Grip: Multifunctional Epidermal Cell Shapes in Bee- and Bird-Pollinated Flowers Flowers bear the function of filters supporting the attraction of pollinators as well as the deterrence of floral antagonists. The effect of epidermal cell shape on the visual display and tactile...

    Pollinators such as butterflies, bees and hummingbirds are necessary for many plants to produce fruits or seeds that make up a majority of the food humans eat and the beauty of the flowers they enjoy. Pollination from honey bees impacts more than $15 billion worth of crops nationwide, the USDA...

    Linking Plant Specialization to Dependence in Interactions for Seed Set in Pollination Networks Studies on pollination networks have provided valuable information on the number, frequency, distribution and identity of interactions between plants and pollinators. However, little is still known...

    Do Honeybees Shape the Bacterial Community Composition in Floral Nectar? BCCs in nectar are abundant and diverse (Table 1; Figs. 1 and 2). We also demonstrate that uncovered flowers show different bacterial populations than do covered flowers, indicating that the bacterial community in floral...

    Generalization versus Specialization in Pollination Systems: Visitors, Thieves, and Pollinators of Hypoestes aristata (Acanthaceae) The honey bee A. mellifera is commonly considered to be a generalist forager, visiting many plant species [58]. Although it usually visits flowers more frequently...
