Global patterns of the contribution of biocultural approaches to pollinators and pollination to quality of life, from studies/sites identified in an analysis. These data were collected as part of, and... more in addition to, a contribution to the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services assessment of Pollinators and Pollination in Food Production. The data show locations of sites where Indigenous and Local Knowledge (ILK) contributes to: (a) beekeeping; (b) honey hunting; (c) Intangible Cultural Heritage listed as globally significant; (d) Cultural and mixed (cultural/natural) sites inscribed on the World Heritage List (WHL) with significance to pollinators. Also includes studies/sites identified where ILK contributions to practices that protect pollinators: Actions to foster pollinator nesting resources; mental maps of pollinators/resources; totems; taboos; manipulation of resources in the landscape; use of biotemporal indicators; and fire to stimulate pollination resources. Shows the locations of three types of diversified farming systems where ILK has been shown to contribute to pollinator conservation: shifting agriculture; home gardens; and commodity agroforestry. Globally Significant Agricultural Heritage Sites that contribute to pollinators and pollination are also included. This record includes the data underpinning maps that have been published in Nature Sustainability with full public access deposit. These maps did not appear in the IPBES assessment.less

File 1: counts of pollen per open flower collected in almond orchards, at known distance from honeybee hives
File 2: fruit set from open pollinated and hand pollinated almond flowers at known distance... more from honeybee hive placements
File 3: fruit set from open pollinated and hand pollinated almond flowers in almond orchard blocks with a range of different colony per hectare densities.
This research was supported by funding from Horticulture Australia Limited, including levies paid by the almond industry.less
