You can check out the full manuscript (Supporting crop pollinators with floral resources: network-based phenological matching), complete with 8 additional figures here. It is an open access journal, freely available to anyone!
This website is designed to provide supplemental information to the paper “Supporting crop pollinators with floral resources: network-based phenological matching” in the journal Ecology and Evolution (an open access journal). We will provide figures detailing the interaction phenology of bees collected in a floral provisioning experiment in central Pennsylvania. We hope that this site is useful to those interested in supporting native and domesticated bee species in agroecosystems.
All of the bee interaction phenologies have now been posted, some lumped together in genera or other groupings. If you have a particular interest in one species that was lumped with others, if you would like to see the interaction phenology of a particular plant species, or if you have other data that you would like us to make a figure out of, please leave a comment below.
You can use the search bar to find your species of interest.
Also, please note that Bombus impatiens, Apis mellifera, and the genus Osmia were all represented in figures in the manuscript (publication pending), and so are omitted from this website.

Both poorly known species with a limited interaction frequency. Lumped together here for convenience. P. andrenoides is in the family Andrenidae, while H. producta is in the family Megachilidae.
Some of the less common remaining Apidae species, which are lumped together here because they visited the habitat with low frequency.
