Interpretive Summary: The objective of this book was to evaluate the means and concerns by which agricultural crops of North America will continue to be pollinated into the 21st century. Chapters review the history and management practices for all managed bee species in North America, in part to illustrate the paths and pitfalls toward successful management. Other chapters review the advantages and regulations for further introductions, and on the cautionary side, the ecological impacts of exotic bee species that are already established on the continent.
