Pollination http://www.pollinatorlive.pwnet.org/ While pollinators may come in small sizes, they play a large and often undervalued role in the production of the food we eat, the health of flowering plants, and the future of wildlife. A decline in the numbers and health of pollinators over the last several years poses a significant threat to the integrity of biodiversity, to global food webs, and to human health, according to scientists.
Join us for a series of live interactive webcasts, web seminars, and satellite field trips about pollinators, gardening, and conservation.
