ABSTRACT: Wild bees provide important ecological services and can be indicators of well-functioning ecosystems. As the agricultural landscape continues to increase, so does the demand for pollination services and in many areas we are seeing a decline in the diversity and abundance of wild bees. The U.S. Geological Survey has developed the Pollinator Library which is user-friendly tool that displays plant-pollinator interactions from various small and large scale studies. Over time as more data is combined, we will be able to make better informed decisions when creating effective pollinator seed mixes and identifying land management techniques that promote healthy pollinator communities.
