It is only recently that the immense economic value of pollination to agriculture has been appreciated. At the same time, the alarming collapse in populations of bees and other pollinators has highlighted the urgency of addressing this issue. This book focuses on the specific measures and practices that the emerging science of pollination ecology is identifying to conserve and promote animal pollinators in agroecosystems. 

It reviews the expanding knowledge base on pollination services, providing evidence to document the status, trends and importance of pollinators to sustainable agricultural production. It provides practical and specific measures that land managers can undertake to ensure that agroecosystems are supportive and friendly to pollinators. It draws on the Global Pollination Project, supported by UNEP/GEF and implemented by FAO and seven partner countries (Brazil, Ghana, India, Kenya, Nepal, Pakistan and South Africa), which serve to provide "lessons from the field".

About the Author:

Barbara Gemmill-Herren was the Focal Point of the International Pollinator Initiative and Global Pollination Project Coordinator at the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, Rome, Italy, until she retired in 2015.

Review:

"This publication illustrates some of the impressive amount of work that has been carried out focusing on pollinators and pollination in recent years... I would like to encourage people to use this book as a reference not only for pollination, but as an example of how governments may mainstream ecosystem services critical to agriculture into National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans..." From the Foreword by Braulio Ferreira de Souza Dias, Executive Secretary, Convention on Biological Diversity

"It covers the full gamut of applied work, from indigenous knowledge and economics to agro-ecology and pesticide biochemistry... this book provides a valuable overview of pollination services at a global level at a time of great interest in the topic" - John Hopkins, Bulletin of the British Ecological Society (July 2017)
