Summary

Wild insect pollination has significant positive effects on pollinator-dependent crop production. To assess the spatial distribution of demand for wild insect pollination, we mapped pollinator-dependent crops based on the 2011Cropland Data Layer.

Purpose

This dataset was created as part of a project to identify priority areas for conservation and restoration of pollinator habitat in the southeast United States. Regional priorities at the county and subwatershed (HUC 12) levels are available. This dataset can be used to alter the criteria for identifying priority areas if a modified approach is more appropriate for your area of interest. When using these data, please keep in mind that they are designed for landscape-level assessments; due to inaccuracies in the national-scale input datasets, they should not be used to conduct field-level assessments of wild pollination. This information can be used to identify possible target areas for restoration or conservation of wild pollinator habitat, but field validation of potential project areas is necessary to confirm that pollinator-dependent crops exist.
