  • 7 Species of Bees Added to Endangered List

    Introduction For the first time in history, several American bee species have been classified as endangered. There are many factors that have contributed to the decline in bee populations in recent years, with climate change being at the root of many of these issues. In order to save the dwindling number of bees, we must implement the mitigation and management plans that are in place, ...

  • Climate-driven synchrony in seed production of masting deciduous and conifer tree species

    Abstract Aims Understanding fluctuations in plant reproductive investment can constitute a key challenge in ecology, conservation and management. Masting events of trees (i.e. the intermittent and synchronous production of abundant seeding material) is an extreme example of such fluctuations. Our objective was to establish the degree of spatial and temporal synchrony in common four masting ...

  • Green Industry Worker Shortage? Look to Upper Cape Cod Regional Technical High School for a possible solution

    It seems like every year there is a shortage of help in the green industry. I hear horror stories of H2B employees being weeks late to show up for work. Typically, they are held up because of incomplete or incorrect paperwork. I hear that many American workers that apply have very little experience or interest in our field, and it can take weeks or even months to train them – only to hope ...

  • Species traits and shoot-root biomass allocation in 20 dry-grassland species

    Abstract Aims: A plant has a limited amount of resources at any time and it allocates them to different structures. In spite of the large number of previous studies on allocation patterns within single species, knowledge of general patterns in species allocation is still very limited. This is because each study was done in different conditions using different methodology, ...

  • The newest strategy for saving bees is really, really old

    With pollinators in decline around the world, conservationists turn to traditional farmers for answers. In northwestern India, the Himalaya Mountains rise sharply out of pine and cedar forests. The foothills of the Kullu Valley are blanketed with apple trees beginning to bloom. It’s a cool spring morning, and Lihat Ram, a farmer in Nashala village, shows me a ...

  • One crop, two ways, multiple benefits

    Nitrogen fixation is one of the best examples of cooperation in nature. Soil microbes – naturally occurring bacteria in the soil – work with plants to pull nitrogen from the air. They turn the nitrogen into a form the plant is able to use. In return, the plant lets the microbes eat some of the sugars it makes. Faba beans (also called fava beans) are one example of plants that work ...

  • Compatibility of Soil-Dwelling Predators and Microbial Agents and their Efficacy in Controlling Soil-Dwelling Stages of Western Flower Thrips Frankliniella Occidentalis

    Western flower thrips (WFT) generally pupate in the soil. This laboratory study was designed to examine the compatibility of soil-dwelling predators with microbial biocontrol agents and assess their combined efficacy against pupating WFT, with a view to their integrated use. The following commercially available biocontrol agents were evaluated: a rove beetle, Dalotia coriaria (Kraatz); predatory ...

  • Top trends conservationists should be paying attention to — but aren’t

    Artificial intelligence, testosterone and ship tracking technology probably aren’t on many conservation organizations’ “top things to think about” lists right now. But they should be, suggests a new report in the scientific journal Trends in Ecology & Evolution. ...

  • Effect of the salinity stress and arbuscular mycorhizal fungi (AMF) on the growth and nutrition of the Marigold (Calendula officinalis)

    In order to evaluate the effect of the Arbuscular mycorhizal fungi (AMF) on Calendula officinalis, an experimental has been carried out in term of salinity stress in totally randomized Factorials in shahrood. The samples were cultivated in tested sandy loam soil. This experiment were conducted in hub seedling (pot) method with four salinity treatment in 1.5-3.5-5.5-7.5 (dSm-1) concentration, two ...

  • Effect of Ethylene on flowers

    Ethylene also has a harmful effect on cut flowers... Ethylene is an invisible, odour-free gas, produced naturally during the life cycle of flowers and plants, which can cause the premature death of flowers, the loss of their petals and/or abnormal opening, among other negative effects. This damage can be virtually eliminated, if we apply BIOCONSERVACION's solutions for ethylene removal. ...

  • Mowing mitigates bioactivity of neonicotinoid insecticides in nectar of flowering lawn weeds and turfgrass guttation

    Systemic neonicotinoid insecticides are used to control of turfgrass insect pests. We tested their transference into nectar of flowering lawn weeds or grass guttation droplets which, if high enough, could be hazardous to bees or other insects that feed on such exudates. We applied imidacloprid or clothianidin to turf with white clover, followed by irrigation, and used LC‐MS/ MS to analyze ...

  • Dancing Bees Waggle the Way to Happier Habitat

    Honeybee waggle dancers are helping researchers identify conservation best practices. The question scientists at the University of Sussex in the U.K. had was simple: Where do honeybees find food? But finding a way to answer that simple question seemed not so simple. Tiny radio or GPS trackers have a limited range, and it would take huge amount of work to survey fields on foot. Instead, ...

  • How plants grow and develop

    How does a complete plant with stems, leafs and flowers develop from a tiny clump of seemingly identical cells? For a very long time, the mechanism of tissue formation in plants remained unclear. The biochemists from Wageningen University also would not have come up with the answer if it wasn’t for their model building colleagues that simulated plant development with their mathematical ...

  • Effect of nano-silver particles on postharvest life of Lilium orientalis cv. ‘Shocking’

    Prolongation of vase life of cut lilies ( Lilium orientalis cv. ‘Shocking’) was studied in vase containing 5, 15, 25, 35 ppm of nano-silver solutions and deionised water as control under controlled conditions. All nano-silver treatments extended the longevity of cut flowers in comparison to control but the concentration of 35 ppm showed the highest vase solution uptake, initial fresh weight ...
