Article Addendum: Pollinator shortage and global crop yield: Looking at the whole spectrum of pollinator dependency
Garibaldi, Lucas A.; Aizen, Marcelo A.; Cunningham, Saul; Klein, Alexandra M.
There is evidence that pollinators are declining as a result of local and global environmental degradation 1, 2, 3 and 4. Because a sizable proportion of the human diet depends directly or indirectly on animal pollination , the issue of how decreases in pollinator stocks could affect global crop production is of paramount importance 6, 7 and 8. Using the extensive FAO data set , we compared 45 year series (1961–2006) in yield, and total production and cultivated area of...[Show more]
