Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum Pollinator Conservation
Check out the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum's Web site to learn about the Pollinator Conservation Consortium (PCC), a group of collaborators recognizing the importance of "Conservation Across Borders" to develop meaningful conservation efforts. The site describes pollinator/plant interactions and migratory corridors between Arizona and Mexico and also holds field research and conservation information.

In The Forgotten Pollinators (Island Press, 1996) authors Stephen L. Buchmann and Gary Paul Nabhan describe our often unsung pollinators such as bees, bats, and butterflies, their interactions with specific plant species, and the demise of both plants and creatures as habitat and essential migratory corridors are fragmented by development.
