Description

The dataset combines 22 datasets from 13 publications conducted in 9 temperate countries (20 European and 2 North American). The data was used to investigate if mass-flowering crop flowering time (early or late season), bloom state (during or after crop flowering) and extent of non-crop habitat cover in the landscape moderated the effect of mass-flowering crop cover on wild pollinator abundance and species richness in mass-flowering crop and non-crop habitats.
The dataset include the following files: SNHds_final (16 variables, 583 Rows) which included the data for non-crop habitat analyses and, MFCds_final (15 variables, 348 Rows) which includes the data for mass-flowering crop habitat analyses.

  • Description of the mode of collection:
    Selection of publications
    We searched for quantifications of the impact of mass-flowering crop cover in the landscape on pollinators sampled in crop and/or non-crop habitats in Web of Science in August 2021. This yielded 157 publications that were scanned for inclusion in the analyses. To be included, publications had to provide data on: 1. mass-flowering crop and non-crop habitat cover within a 1-km radius landscape around the surveyed site. Mass-flowering crop area included dominant crops flowering during pollinator surveys; and 2. Abundance and/or species richness of wild pollinators in crop and/or non-crop habitats, either bumblebees, other bees and non-bees, surveyed either using transects or pan-traps.

    The literature search resulted in nine publications where the raw data was extractable. An additional twelve publications were identified as relevant, but raw data was not available. The authors for these twelve publications were asked to share their raw data, and we received data for seven. This led to a final selection of 13 publications that included 22 studies, defined as a dataset of pollinator surveys performed in a given region in a given year, and 498 landscapes from nine countries. For each sampling site (i.e. landscape of 1-km radius), we compiled data on pollinators, landscape composition and study-specific information which is summarized in the published paper.
