Our study provides one of the first well-documented examples in temperate ecosystems that forest edges, largely unrecognized source of pollinators to agriculture compared with other seminatural habitats, actually act as a reservoir of potential pollinators that benefit crops in providing nesting or mating sites for important early spring pollinators. Biologic and ecological traits were used to explain observed species distribution patterns in oilseed rape field.
