Read our Policy Brief: New Analysis of Wild Bee Abundance Highlights Areas of Concerns. In brief, the study highlights the following policy implications:
• Counties with significant mismatch between crop pollination needs and wild bee abundance should be targeted for private and public habitat programs to support pollinators.
• Investment in monitoring programs is needed to understand future status and trends in wild bee populations and to reduce uncertainty about this in regions with limited information.
