Menz, Myles H.M.; Phillips, Ryan; Winfree, Rachael; Kremen, Claire; Aizen, Marcelo A.; Johnson, Steven D.; Dixon, Kingsley

Description

Ecological restoration of plant-pollinator interactions has received surprisingly little attention, despite animal-mediated pollination underpinning reproduction of the majority of higher plants. Here, we offer a conceptual and practical framework for the ecological restoration of pollination mutualisms. Through the use of targeted restoration plantings to attract and sustain pollinators and increased knowledge of the ecological requirements of pollinators, we propose that pollination could be...[Show more]
