Temporal variation in global crop pollinator communities

How to cite this Dataset


This dataset is in a single Excel file that contains information on the richness and abundance of insect pollinators in crop systems collated from previous studies on crop systems from across the world.

The data file has five spreadsheets, details of which are outlined below:

1. Metadata
2. Summary - Information on study ID, country, crop, years of sampling and no. of sites
3. Abundance data - Species level data on pollinator abundance recorded at each study site
4. Site data - Site data on type of field/farm/orchard, and years of sampling
5. Climate data - Temperature data for sampling dates for each study and site where available
