Honey Bees in the Pollination Networks of Natural Areas? An Overview and Best Management Practices
To understand and forecast biological responses to climate change, scientists frequently use field
In the Tropical Andes millions of people depend upon the use of wild and domesticated
biodiversity for their livelihoods, but the complex interactions between the
A major challenge in articulating human dimensions of climate change lies in translating global climate forecasts into impact assessments that are intuitive to the public.
Sunflower is a unique model species for assessing crop responses and adaptation to climate change. We provide an initial assessment of how climate change may influence the abiotic and biotic environment of cultivated sunflower across the world.
To address the growing interest and expressed need for pollinator management strategies a special pollinator symposium was held at the 2017 annual conference of the Natural Areas Association, curated by William Carromero of the US Forest Service and Lis
The below case studies were collected and shared in a September 2018 Newsletter from the Center for Plant Conservation.
Functional traits are increasingly used to understand the ecology of plants and to predict their responses to global changes. Unfortunately, trait data are unavailable for the majority of plant species.
For many species and seed sources used in restoration activities, specific seed germination
requirements are often unknown. Because seed dormancy and germination traits can be
Native pollinating bees are a vital component of the biologically diverse plant and animal community which is critical to healthy, ecologically functional range landscapes. There are more than 20,000 species of bees world-wide.
