Pollination has been in the headlines for the past few years because it directly affects the food supply on Earth. Flowering plants produce fruit or seeds only after pollination. Pollination by insects is a critical function of all land ecosystems. Most orchard fruits, vegetables, and some field crops are pollinated by insects. Pollinators are threatened by pesticides, invasive species, and habitat destruction, but they are especially threatened by a lack of awareness about their importance. This informative book, filled with stunning photographs, will focus on the critical fact that protecting pollinators means having food to eat. It will help children look at insects in a very different way.
