This bilingual book contains descriptions, tips, full-color photographs and illustrations of the most common pollinators of the Sonoran Desert. It includes general information about pollinators, their habitats, and how you can help them do their work. The book also identifies and describes individual pollinators?hummingbirds, bats, butterflies, moths, bees, wasps, flies, and beetles — and includes their distribution, conservation status, and the plants they pollinate. Paginas

A plants list with the descriptions of 36 species (flower color, size, water and sunlight needs, flowering season and their pollinators) coupled with garden design examples can help you create your own backyard wildlife oases, and in turn, help resident and migratory pollinators maintain a healthy population within the Sonoran Desert.
