Pollinating bee species face an increased risk of extinction worldwide. The annual value of this pollination service in the U.S. is calculated at US $ 15 billion and the estimate worldwide is US $ 65 - 70 billion. But, endeavors on pollinator monitoring and management must build on reliable surveillance and monitoring of pollinator species. This contribution presents the ABIS toolset for species identification pollinating bees as a mobile location-based service that can operate in scientific collections as well as in the field.
