Announcing a new pollinator bibliography resource
- In celebration of this year's Pollinator Week, 20-26 June
(http://www.pollinator.org/pollinator_week_2011.htm), I'm pleased to
announce the availability of a bibliographic database
containing >10,000 references about pollination biology. This
project by the National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII),
a program administered by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), puts on
the Web an EndNote database I've been collecting for a few decades,
as described at
The link to the database is www.nbii.gov/inouye. The Web site works
with Firefox and Safari browsers at present.
If you have references that are not included in the database, or
other suggestions about how to improve the portal, please send them
to me. The database will be updated regularly as new literature appears.
Happy Pollinator Week.

On leave 2010-11 working as a Program Officer in Population and
Community Ecology (Division of Environmental Biology), National
Jamie Strange and I are compiling in situ pictures of western North American bumble bees to be incorporated into a field guide. If you have pictures that you are interested in sharing for this field guide please send me an email at jonathan.koch@.... Your photograph(s) will be credited to your name in the field guide. I would be most thankful for any bumble bee pictures you are willing to share with us.
While I have several photographs already of in situ bumble bees, here are the species I am looking for:
Bombus pensylvanicus subsp. sonorus
Thank you in advance!
