This is more than just a feel good ecological tale. About one third of the foods and beverages we consume require animal pollinators. Coffee, melons, squash, peaches, apples, pumpkins, vanilla, almonds, blueberries and chocolate are just a few of these crops. The value of Womens Rolex Watches Ebay
animal pollinators is estimated to be about $20 billion annually.
butterfly populations appear to be at an all time low due in part to genetically modified crops such as corn and soybeans. These crops are made genetically immune to herbicides, which kill any "weeds" that encroach on crop fields. As a result, where genetically modified foods are grown, monarchs disappear because there is no milkweed upon which to lay their eggs.
Department of Agriculture designates a week in June as National Pollinator Week. The effort is intended to draw attention to the invaluable services provided by bees, beetles, butterflies, flies, birds and other pollinators.
Though the USDA promotes Pollinator Week, it permits the use of genetically modified crops. So as native plants disappear, native pollinators experience the same fate.
75 percent of all flowering plants are pollinated by more than 200,000 species of animals. When bees and other pollinators visit flowers for nectar, they pick up pollen and move it along to other flowers as they forage. Without the service of pollinators, these plants would vanish.
Pollinators keep the world green
Despite the importance of pollinators, many are facing serious population declines. Bumble bee and honeybee numbers Rolex Watch Women have been declining for years, and monarch Rolex Yachtmaster 2 Platinum

Plants reproduce when pollen (sperm) from male flower parts (anthers) reaches the pistil (site of egg production). After fertilization, seeds are formed.
