Are managed honey bees (Apis mellifera) altering native pollinator diversity, or their interactions with plants in Western Canadian grasslands?Download
The grasslands region of southern Alberta, Canada, is dominated by agricultural activity, and approximately 75% of native grasslands have been lost to development. Honey bees (Apis mellifera) were introduced about a century ago, and today they are used to facilitate the pollination of crops; in...
Grasslands cover a quarter of the planet’s terrestrial surface and constitute 70% of the world’s agricultural land area. Grasslands provide clean water, facilitate effective nutrient cycling, and provide necessary habitat and forage for livestock and wildlife. In addition, grasslands have the...
Displacement and Mortality of Birds by High Voltage Transmission Lines in the Canadian Dry Mixed PrairieDownload
Canadian grasslands are continuing to experience loss in habitat and degradation in quality due to agricultural expansion and fragmentation from roads, pipelines, and transmission lines. Today, only 43% of Canadian mixed grass prairie remains. This loss and fragmentation has led to a decline in...
Influence of management and disturbance history on germinable seed bank composition and legume recruitment in Alberta’s Central Parkland and Dry Mixedgrass prairieDownload
Seed banks (SB) are a cryptic component of grassland plant community (PC) diversity and are overlooked for their contribution of a significant ecological service in the form of plant propagules that replenish the aboveground plant community with new individuals and thereby aid in recovery...
