Product Description

From the Back Cover

Protect the Pollinators That Help Feed the World
Bees, wasps, butterflies, moths, flies, and some beetles pollinate more than 70 percent of flowering plants, but North America's native pollinators face multiple threats to their health and habitat. The Xerces Society offers a complete action plan of protecting these industrious animals by providing flowering habitat and nesting sites.

Providing Healthy Habitats for Pollinators:
Supports bountiful farm and garden harvests
Maintains healthy plant communities
Provides food for other wildlife
Beautifies your landscape with flower plants

"Precise, elegant, and thoughtful, the recommendations offered by the Xerces Society will become essential to advancing a healthy and diverse food-production system."  - Gary Paul Nabhan, The Forgotten Pollinators and Renewing America's Food Traditions

"Here is the most comprehensive treatment yet of native pollinators, detailing natural history, ecological importance, taxonomy, conservation, and restoration of native pollinator communities. Attracting Native Pollinators belongs on the bookshelf to everyone who values the future of the natural world."  - Douglas W. Tallamy, author, Bringing Nature Home

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I wanted to plant a pollinator garden in the back. I used ANP as the basic resource for plant characteristics (sun/water) and what pollinators are attracted. I cross checked against local plants available from nurseries near by.
The book has a thorough review of pollinator biology and lots of information to help various kinds of groups set up habitat for pollinators.
The text is written primarily for Americans but includes Canadian areas as well.

My definitive guide to all things relating to pollinators, particularly the bees. This one book helped me identify all the different bees and other faux bees in my garden and there are great ideas for making your garden more pollinator friendly.
