2016 webinar pollinators


The Great Basin-Native Plant Project and Fire Science Exchange, the BLM Plant Conservation Program, the US Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station, and the Society for Ecological Restoration Great Basin Chapter are excited to bring you this webinar series on seeding and restoration that will provide an opportunity to highlight and discuss current research, case-studies, and tools that help inform applied restoration opportunities throughout the Great Basin. These webinars are free and open to the public. We encourage the participation of resource professionals, managers, cooperators, and partners interested in broadening the discussion of how these tools are relevant to sustaining our restoration investments at both ecological and economical scales. Please visit the Great Basin Fire Science Exchange website ( for current and past webinar series.

Sagebrushes (Artemisia, subgenus Tridentatae) are champion chemists and famous for their abundant and complex volatile bouquets. The chemical make-up of sagebrushes plays important roles in plant fitness and survival and is an unseen but fundamental component of sagebrush habitats.
James H. Cane, USDA-ARS Pollinating Insect Research Unit, Utah State University, provides a brief review of bee life histories, then summarizes his evaluations of common native forbs of the Great Basin that are attractive to native bee communities (and the ones in use now that are of little value to bees), to help land managers choose pollinator-friendly native wildflowers that are practical to seed.
