A better understanding of the conditions in which native bees contribute substantially to crop pollination also make crop pollination more sustainable. This project will identify land management practices that increase crop pollination by native bees. It will also identify the floral resources useful in restoring bees. The resulting knowledge will be transferred to stakeholders and will be used by resource management agencies to restore pollinator habitat throughout the state.
