Pollination Model - Greanleaf Model for Bee Flight Distance

Hello everyone, has anyone gotten the Greanleaf formula to work (Oecologia, 2007)? Also,  did you parameterized the model for maximum distance or typical distances? I worked a couple by hand but I have many bees and I want to get Excel to do the calculating.

I'm sure I am just being dumb about it but I can't make it work tonight.

    Hi, I don't have any direct experience with the Greenleaf model, but I've done some bee stuff and just googled the paper.  Are you referring to the Y = log a + b log X Equation in Table 1?  I'd be happy to help if I can.

    Can you give more details of what's not working for you?
