Gary Paul Nabhan is director of science at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and author of eight books, including The Geography of Childhood and The Desert Smells Like Rain. The Forgotten Pollinators is the centerpiece of a nationwide campaign sponsored by the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum designed to raise awareness of pollinators and threatened plants dependent on them. Библиографические данные. The Forgotten Pollinators.

Paul Mirocha’s illustrations not only brighten the jacket illustration and pages within this book, but are a key element of the Forgotten Pollinators campaign’s attempt to capture people’s imaginations with the wonder and natural beauty and grace of pollinators worldwide. Mrill Ingram, our campaign coordinator, has given us valuable insights, advice, logistical support, and creative management skills since March 1995.

The Forgotten Pollinators - Stephen L. Buchmann. We may never know when early peoples first discovered that plants could be pollinated by hand without recourse to their natural pollinating agents. This carving, however, from the palace of Assyrian King Ashuir-nasir-pal II (83-859 . discovered at Calah, is the earliest known depiction of such an event.

Consider this: Without interaction between animals and flowering plants, the seeds and fruits that make up nearly eighty percent of the human diet would not exist. In The Forgotten Pollinators, Stephen L.

Buchmann and Nabhan have taken great care both to inform us that all would not be lost, because pollinator "Y" or "Z" is frequently waiting in the wings. But in many, many cases, pollinator "X" has never been studied and cannot even be named, let alone conserved.

Consider this: Without interaction between animals and flowering plants, the seeds and fruits that make up nearly eighty percent of the human diet would not exist.In The Forgotten Pollinators, Stephen L. Buchmann, one of the world's leading authorities on bees and pollination, and Gary Paul Nabhan, award-winning writer and renowned crop ecologist, explore the vital but little-appreciated relationship between plants and the animals they depend on for reproduction -- bees, beetles, butterflies, hummingbirds, moths, bats, and countless other animals, some widely recognized and other almost unknown.Scenes from around the globe -- examining island flora and fauna on the Galapagos, counting bees in the Panamanian rain forest, witnessing an ancient honey-hunting ritual in Malaysia -- bring to life the hidden relationships between plants and animals, and demonstrate the ways in which human society affects and is affected by those relationships. Buchmann and Nabhan combine vignettes from the field with expository discussions of ecology, botany, and crop science to present a lively and fascinating account of the ecological and cultural context of plant-pollinator relationships.More than any other natural process, plant-pollinator relationships offer vivid examples of the connections between endangered species and threatened habitats. The authors explain how human-induced changes in pollinator populations -- caused by overuse of chemical pesticides, unbridled development, and conversion of natural areas into monocultural cropland-can have a ripple effect on disparate species, ultimately leading to a "cascade of linked extinctions."

The bunch of essays by two individual authors are disjointed and repetitive; could have been better organized and shortened considerably. On a positive note, the essays on Monarch butterflies and Mayan bees are particularly good.

The shipping timing was great. The price was too. However, the print inside the book was very small. I think it will be a good book for reference
with our fellow beekeepers though. The condition of the book is fine except for the surprise writing in the front which indicated that the book
had actually been gifted to a husband by his wife as it included her comment and signature. That was a little uncomfortable. I gently removed
that page from the book. The content seems extremely well documented and accurate. That's the powerful aspect we appreciated most. Also,
the illustrations amidst the text are beautiful as well as accurate in detail.

This book really captures the beauty of the Southwest amoungst other places where pollinators play a crucial role. Buchmann and Nabhan tell a tale that is both dazzling and at the time disturbing: the lost of pollinators and how they impact our lives in so many ways. The book brings about how humankind takes for granted the timeless work these creatures do. Unfortunately, the writing style of the book tends to be repetative and thoughts fragmented like some of the stories were torn right out of a journal (which they probably were). However, overall a book that will add greater insight and depth to any human concerned about the environment.

Chock full of fascinating info. Rather dense, so I found myself reading it in small chunks, the better to digest.

Inerrace
Like Silent Spring, this book surprizes and alarms. It is well written, rarely bogging down, and opens new ways of understanding with almost every chapter - the perils of patchwork preservation, the honeybee as an invading exotic, the concept of nectar corridors for long distance pollinators. Well done indeed.

fetish
This books is an obligated reference for any person interested on pollinators, since this particular topic is of vital importance for our every day life, and 99 % of the people doesn't even know about it.

It cover a wide selection of topics regarding pollination, from insects to vertebrates!, anther plus is, that is written for both scientists and just casual readers.

This book is a MUST.

I do not have a plant or animal biology back ground, nevertheless this book held my interest and I feel that I have learned a great deal. I see the world with greater clarity.

I highly recommend this book.

very informative, good book for any pollinator research.
