CPC Pollinators of Rare Plants Database
Given their essential role in plant reproduction, animal pollinators are critical to sustaining both native and agricultural ecosystems. Consequently, reintroduction of rare plants into natural landscapes relies critically on the availability of pollen vectors. To aid conservation practitioners in the identifying pollen vectors of rare plants, the Center for Plant Conservation has compiled a database of plant-pollinator interactions, through funding from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. This database contains plant-pollinator pairs from the grey and academic literature, complete with links pollinator references where possible. Search by below by plant or pollinator name to find the plant-animal interactions that are key to maintaining rare plant populations.
