BMPs for Pollinators: Rangelands AND Calculated Floral Resource Withdrawal by Managed Honey Bees in Light of Native Bee Reproduction
Welcome to our Pollinator Management Series - seven exciting presenters on four webinar dates in March and April will cover a wide range of topics having to do with best practices for managing natural areas, while ensuring pollinator health and resilience - a topic our members have said is important to them. The Pollinator Management Series will share some of the background and conclusions that will shortly be published in an NAA Synthesis Paper on Pollinator Health and Resilience in Natural Areas Management - stay tuned for more on this important forthcoming resource!

Some of the information contained in this series was originally shared in the Pollinator Symposium at the 2017 Natural Areas Conference.  We are grateful for the support of the U.S. Forest Service for this series.
Talk 1: Scott Hoffman Black, Executive Director, Xerces Society: Best Management Practices for Pollinators: Creating Practices that are Meaningful and Implementable for Rangelands

Talk 2: Jim Cane, Research Entomologist, USDA-ARS Pollinating Insect Research Unit: Calculated Floral Resource Withdrawal by Managed Honey Bees in Light of Native Bee Reproduction

Scott Hoffman Black
Executive Director @Xerces Society
Scott has extensive experience in endangered species conservation, pollinator conservation, and sustainable agricultural and range and forest management issues. He has authored over 200 scientific and popular publications, co-authored two books and contributed chapters to several others, and his work has been featured in newspapers, magazines, books, and on radio and television.
Jim Kane
Research Entomologist @USDA-ARS Pollinating Insect Research Unit
Dr. Cane has been interested in comparative studies of solitary bees for 30 years, beginning with the evolutionary origins and use of lipid exocrine secretions to attract mates, repel predators, supplement larval diets, and waterproof/disinfect their nests. Work with these bees naturally led to study of their pollination services in both wildland and agricultural settings.
