Native pollinating bees are a vital component of the biologically diverse plant and animal community which is critical to healthy, ecologically functional range landscapes. There are more than 20,000 species of bees world-wide.
Botanic gardens are organized around plant collections, and climate change will affect those collections.
Botanical gardens and their living collections have unique but underutilized resources for plant biology research.
Public gardens regularly share their practices for attracting and nurturing pollinators while also maintaining worldclass horticultural displays.
