Arrowleaf balsamroot, Balsamorhiza sagittata (Pursh) Nutt, is a common, sometimes dominant, longlived forb that flowers early in spring from the foothills to upper-montane areas of the northern Rocky Mountains and Intermountain West. Public land managers desire its seed for rangeland rehabilitation. Through manual pollination field trials, the species was found to have a mixed pollination system. It is primarily xenogamous (46% of ovules yielded plump achenes) but partially self-compatible (31…

Breeding Biology and Bee Guild of Douglas' Dustymaiden, Chaenactis douglasii (Asteraceae, Helenieae)
TLDR
Through manual pollination experiments, C. douglasii was found to be only weakly self-fertile; 15% of flowers from geitonogamy and autogamy treatments yielded filled achenes, and freely visited flowers from a wild population produced 91% fertile achene, indicating that seed production was not pollinator limited.
Comparison of Hand-Pollinated and Naturally-Pollinated Puget Balsamroot (Balsamorhiza deltoidea Nutt.) to Determine Pollinator Limitations on South Puget Sound Lowland Prairies
TLDR
Determining pollinator population sizes on the south Puget Sound lowland prairies could prove to be useful in determining the relative effects of pollinator limitation and low pollen quality, because ranges of pollinators no longer adequately overlap to facilitate travel between the ecosystem fragments.
Floral Guilds of Bees in Sagebrush Steppe: Comparing Bee Usage of Wildflowers Available for Postfire Restoration
TLDR
This study quantitatively characterized the floral guilds of 17 prevalent wildflower species of the Great Basin that are, or could be, available for restoration seed mixes and found that bees are the primary pollinators needed for seed production.
Comparison of Hand-Pollinated and Naturally-Pollinated Puget Balsamroot (Balsamorhiza deltoidea Nutt.) to Determine Pollinator Limitations on South Puget Sound Lowland Prairies
South Puget Sound prairies are fragmented and degraded, which has a profound effect on plant populations, especially those that are already species of concern, such as Puget balsamroot (Balsamorhiza
Some Observations on the Pollination of Round-Leaf Orchid, Galearis ( Amerorchis ) rotundifolia , Near Jasper, Alberta
On June 16 and 17, 2010, data were collected on pollination in a population of Galearis rotundifolia at the confluence of the Maligne and Athabasca Rivers north of Jasper, Alberta. The primary
Specialist Osmia bees forage indiscriminately among hybridizing Balsamorhiza floral hosts

TLDR
Foraging infidelity by these oligolectic Osmia bees will contribute to introgression and hybridization where interfertile species of Balsamorhiza meet and flower together, and the Connoisseur Hypothesis was rejected.
Specialist bees collect Asteraceae pollen by distinctive abdominal drumming (Osmia) or tapping (Melissodes, Svastra)

  • 2016
Four species of western US Osmia (3 Cephalosmia) that are Asteraceae specialists (mesoleges) were observed using a stereotypical means of collecting pollen—abdominal drumming—to gather pollen from 21
Substrates and Materials Used for Nesting by North American Osmia Bees (Hymenoptera: Apiformes: Megachilidae)
TLDR
Nesting substrates and construction materials are compared for 65 of North America’s 139 described native species of Osmia bees to indicate the range of nesting habits and materials of European species are largely comparable, although records indicate that far more European species may nest in empty snail shells.
A review and updated classification of pollen gathering behavior in bees (Hymenoptera, Apoidea)
TLDR
This classification sets the groundwork for further research on various topics, including behavioral plasticity in different species, comparisons between generalists and specialists, and the relative effectiveness of different pollen gathering behaviors.
Foraging Behavior, Taxonomy, and Morphology of Bees (Hymenoptera: Apoidea), with an Emphasis on Perdita (Hymenoptera: Andrenidae)
Perdita subgenus Heteroperdita Timberlake, a distinctive subgenus of 22 species from the southwestern United States and adjacent Mexico, all specialists on Tiquilia (Boraginaceae), is revised. Nine

Arrowleaf balsamroot and mules ear seed germination.
TLDR
The germination of arrowleaf balsamroot and mules ear are important coarse forbs on sagebrush (Artemisiu) rangelands in western North America and a knowledge of seed germination and seedbed ecology is necessary for successful revegetation with these species.
Pollinating Efficacy of Osmia cornuta and Apis mellifera (Hymenoptera: Megachilidae, Apidae) on ‘Red Delicious’ Apple
TLDR
This result indicates that 530 nesting O. cornuta females per hectare are enough to provide adequate apple pollination, and that A. mellifera pollen collectors had very high rates of stigma contact, but they were very scarce on ‘Delicious’ flowers despite the presence of abundant brood in their hives.
Pollination, Foraging, and Nesting Ecology of the Leaf-Cutting Bee Megachile (Delomegachile) addenda (Hymenoptera: Megachilidae) on Cranberry Beds
TLDR
The leaf-cutting bee Megachile addenda Cresson is an effective and potentially manageable pollinator of cultivated cranberries, Vaccinium macrocarpon Aiton, but management of M. addenda for cranberry pollination must include control of its cleptoparasite Coelioxys immaculata Cockerell, which can parasitize >90% of nest cells when abundant.
Phylogenetic affinities among and within the coneflower genera (Asteraceae, Heliantheae), a chloroplast DNA analysis
TLDR
Chloroplast DNA data support Robinson's subtribal disposition of the coneflower genera, including Echinacea and Rudbeckia, and two evolutionary lineages were supported.
A revision of the tribal and subtribal limits of the Heliantheae (Asteraceae)
TLDR
The tribe Heliantheae is expanded to include the genera previously placed in the tribe Heienieae and many genera from the Senecioneae, and thirty-five subtribes are recognized and described.
Flowers and Insects. I
TLDR
The flower agrees in most respects with D. elatum, but the exposed parts of the two upper petals which arch over the entrance to the spur are white, forming a sure guide to the nectar.
An ITS phylogeny of Balsamorhiza and Wyethia (Asteraceae: Heliantheae).
TLDR
The relationships among the species of Balsamorhiza and Wyethia (Asteraceae: Heliantheae) were examined using data from the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region of the nuclear ribosomal DNA to show that the two groups together form a monophyletic group.
Isolating mechanisms and implications for modes of speciation in Heliantheae (Compositae )
TLDR
The general role of isolating mechanisms in speciation in the Heliantheae suggests geographic and allopolyploid modes as most common with recombinational and quantum speciation of lesser significance.
In-nest biologies and development of immature stages of three Osmia species (Hymenoptera: Megachilidae)
TLDR
The function of head tubercles (malar, labroclypeal, genal) are associated with the nesting biology of Osmia for the first time, and these particular features distinguish the two subgenera and three species treated and should be incorporated into future biosystematic studies.
Phylogenetic analysis of Silphium and subtribe Engelmanniinae (Asteraceae: Heliantheae) based on ITS and ETS sequence data.
TLDR
It is suggested that the cypsela complex, which is present in Berlandiera, Chrysogonum, Engelmannia, and Lindheimera, arose only once and was subsequently lost in Silphium, and supported the expansion of subtribe Engelmanniinae to include Balsamorhiza, Borrichia, Rojasianthe, Vigethia and Wyethia.
