Publications Library

As a science-based organization, the Xerces Society produces dozens of publications annually, all of which employ the best available research to guide effective conservation efforts. Our publications range from guidelines for land managers, to brochures offering overviews of key concepts related to invertebrate conservation, from books about supporting pollinators in farmland, to region-specific plant lists. We hope that whatever you are seeking—whether it's guidance on making a home or community garden pollinator-friendly, advice on developing a local pesticide reduction strategy, or detailed information on restoring habitat—you will find it here!

A Guide to the Essential Steps for Protecting Freshwater Mussels in Aquatic and Riparian Restoration, Construction, and Land Management Projects and Activities
Watch monarchs flutter among oyamel fir trees in Santuario Piedra Herrada, Mexico.
Freshwater mussels are rarely recognized for the important role they play in supporting river, stream, and lake ecosystems. Salmon and other native fish are among the myriad species that benefit from the services mussels provide. Sadly, freshwater mussels are sensitive to changes in their environment and as a group they are among the most imperiled animals in the world.
Based on the best available data for when and where monarchs breed in the West, we have developed regionally appropriate monarch breeding habitat management windows, when management activities are least likely to have negative effects on monarchs.
