About Us

This website was developed by the Division of Earth & Life Studies of the National Academies. It is based on the “Pollinator Garden Wheel” and the National Research Council report Status of Pollinators in North America, authored by the Board on Life Sciences and the Board on Agriculture and Natural Resources.

The National Academies—the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, Institute of Medicine, and the National Research Council—provide a public service by working outside the framework of government to ensure independent advice on matters of science, technology, and medicine. They enlist committees of the nation’s top scientists, engineers, and other experts—all of whom volunteer their time to study specific concerns. The results of these deliberations are authoritative, peer-reviewed reports that have inspired some of the nation’s most significant efforts to improve the health, education, and welfare of the population.
