Resources

Crops, Weeds and Pollinators - Understanding Ecological Interactions for Better Management
Author: Altieri, M.A., Nicholls, C.I., et al.
This publication looks at managing agricultural systems through an ecological approach, building upon beneficial biological interactions and finding positive synergies between pollination and weed management.
Policy Analysis Paper: Policy Mainstreaming of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services With a Focus on Pollination
Author: Rose, T.; Kremen, C.; Thrupp, A.; Gemmill-Herren, B.; Graub, B. & Azzu, N
Addresses the need to strengthen the interface between the scientific community, knowledge-holders and policymakers, and build capacity for and strengthen the use of science and knowledge in policymaking on ecosystem services, with a focus on pollination
Pollinator Safety in Agriculture
Author: Roubik, D.W. (ed.)
Contributing to knowledge management of pollination services in sustainable agriculture, FAO and its partners have assembled evidence related to wild pollinators, to advance understanding of pollinator's risks to pesticides, through their natural history.
Aspects Determining the Risk of Pesticides to Wild Bees
Author: van der Valk, H., Koomen, I., et al.
This publication is a tool to better understand the pesticide exposure of key crop pollinators (honey bees, but also wild bees) through the development of risk profiles for cropping systems in three countries.
Potential Effects of Climate Change on Crop Pollination
Author: Kjøhl, M., Nielsen, A. & Stenseth, N.C.
Recognizing that the interactions between climate, crops and biodiversity are complex and not always well understood, FAO has coordinated this review of the potential effects of climate change on crop pollination.
