Might Flowers of Invasive Plants Increase Native Bee Carrying Capacity? Intimations From Capitol Reef National Park, Utah
TLDR
It is argued that invasives with entomophilous flowers are unlikely to either facilitate the reproduction of uncommon native plants or consistently compete with them for pollinators, and are likely, over time, to selectively increase the carrying capacity and population size of native bees. Expand
Managing the trade off between nitrogen supply and retention with cover crop mixtures
Abstract The ability of cover crop mixtures to provide both nitrogen (N) retention and N supply services has been extensively studied in research station experiments, especially with grass-legumeExpand
Optimizing Vetch Nitrogen Production and Corn Nitrogen Accumulation under No‐Till Management
TLDR
It is concluded that although vetch N availability can be manipulated through termination date, the dependence on climate for vetch biomass levels and N release will complicate year-to-year predictability. Expand
Ecosystem Services and Disservices Are Bundled in Simple and Diverse Cover Cropping Systems
Agroecosystems are increasingly expected to provide multiple ecosystem services. We tested whether and how cover crop selection (identity and number of species) affects provisioning of multipleExpand
Orchard pollination in Capitol Reef National Park, Utah, USA. Honey bees or native bees?
TLDR
It is suggested that gradual withdrawal of honey bees from Capitol Reef National Park would help conserve native bee populations without decreasing orchard crop productivity, and would serve as a demonstration of the commercial value of native pollinators. Expand
Effects of the insecticide phosmet on solitary bee foraging and nesting in orchards of Capitol Reef National Park, Utah.
TLDR
It is shown that M. rotundata is negatively affected by phosmet spraying and suggested that caution should be exercised in its use in areas where bees are apt to forage, and recorded a rich bee fauna in the orchards and on plants nearby. Expand
Effects of the Insecticide Phosmet on Solitary Bee Foraging and Nesting in Orchards of Capitol Reef National Park, Utah
TLDR
It is shown that M. rotundata is negatively affected by phosmet spraying and suggested that caution should be exercised in its use in areas where bees are apt to forage, and recorded a rich bee fauna in the orchards and on plants nearby. Expand
Mitigation of Seed Germination Impediments in Hairy Vetch
TLDR
It is indicated that pretreatments may increase germination and reduce hard-seeded ness, but reduce seed viability and seedling vigor in some seed sources. Expand
Managing nitrogen through cover crop species selection in the U.S. mid-Atlantic
TLDR
The results show clearly that cover crop species selection and mixture design can substantially mitigate tradeoffs between N retention and N supply to cash crops, providing a powerful tool for managing N in temperate cropping systems. Expand
