9781603426954: Attracting Native Pollinators: The Xerces Society Guide, Protecting North America's Bees and Butterflies

With the recent decline of the European honey bee, it is more important than ever to encourage the activity of other native pollinators to keep your flowers beautiful and your grains and produce plentiful. In Attracting Native Pollinators, you’ll find ideas for building nesting structures and creating a welcoming habitat for an array of diverse pollinators that includes not only bees, but butterflies, moths, and more. Take action and protect North America’s food supply for the future, while at the same time enjoying a happily bustling landscape.

From the Back Cover:

Protect the Pollinators That Help Feed the World
Bees, wasps, butterflies, moths, flies, and some beetles pollinate more than 70 percent of flowering plants, but North America's native pollinators face multiple threats to their health and habitat. The Xerces Society offers a complete action plan of protecting these industrious animals by providing flowering habitat and nesting sites.

Providing Healthy Habitats for Pollinators:
Supports bountiful farm and garden harvests
Maintains healthy plant communities
Provides food for other wildlife
Beautifies your landscape with flower plants

"Precise, elegant, and thoughtful, the recommendations offered by the Xerces Society will become essential to advancing a healthy and diverse food-production system."  - Gary Paul Nabhan, The Forgotten Pollinators and Renewing America's Food Traditions

"Here is the most comprehensive treatment yet of native pollinators, detailing natural history, ecological importance, taxonomy, conservation, and restoration of native pollinator communities. Attracting Native Pollinators belongs on the bookshelf to everyone who values the future of the natural world."  - Douglas W. Tallamy, author, Bringing Nature Home
