Join the Xerces Society’s Eric Lee-Mäder for a contemporary review of farm-based pollinator and beneficial insect conservation. Specific topics include the latest science, public policy, and business trends that are driving this work, as well as specific challenges that arise when working in intensively managed agriculture. Case studies featuring large-scale habitat projects such as hedgerows, beetle banks, flowering field borders, and cover crops will be highlighted, along with major food industry efforts to incorporate pollinator conservation into their business practices.
