The Forgotten Pollinators
In The Forgotten Pollinators, the authors explore the vital but little-appreciated relationship between plants and the animals they depend on for reproduction -- bees, beetles, butterflies, hummingbirds, moths, bats, and countless other animals. Relating stories of their field research, they demonstrate the ways in which human society affects and is affected by these plant-pollinator relationships. The Forgotten Pollinators, by Stephen L. Buchmann and Gary Paul Nabhan, Island Press, 1997.
