Comparing Foraging Niches Of Newly Sympatric Bumble Bees In Alpine Habitats Of Colorado 2017 405 Global climate change has facilitated upward range shifts of bumble bees in mountainous habitats worldwide, increasing species richness and competition for floral resources. Competition for flowers is predicted to occur between bees with similar trai...
Recovery Of An Alpine Bombus Community Following Drought-Mediated Population Contractions 2015 1434 Worldwide pollinator decline has increased the urgency of assessing nativepollinator abundance and genetic fitness of existing populations. In 2012, anextreme drought in the intermountain US caused severe population contractionswithin a Bombus commun...
Modeling The Effects Of Roadside And Meadow Foliage Management On The Dynamics Of Bombus Impatiens Populations 2019 318 Populations of pollinators, including the common ground bumble bee Bombus impatiens, can suffer declines due to a lack of flower resources. Flower resources can be influenced by a variety of natural and anthropogenic factors. There is evidence that r...
The Effect Of Flowering Synchrony And Floral Display On The Reproduction Of A Gynodioecious Alpine Cushion Plant, Silene Acaulis (Caryophyllaceae) 2018 569 We tested whether floral display and flowering synchrony with conspecific neighbors affected the reproductive success of each sex in a gynodioecious species, Silene acaulis. Furthermore, we explored how varying the spatial scale and type (which sexes...
Hefty Vs Wimpy: A Biomechanical Hypothesis For Plant Pollinator Associations 2016 770 Although research has suggested that biomechanics of flowers are linked to energetics in pollinator foraging behavior, no studies have quantified foraging choices based on differences in biomechanics among floral species.. Here we examined pollinato...
Bumble Bee Species Distribution And Genetic Structure Of Bombus Vagans In The Southern Appalachians 2021 90 Bumble bees (Bombus spp.) have faced significant declines worldwide in the past 60 years due to anthropogenic factors. Lacking routine monitoring of populations, their fate is uncertain. With decreased population numbers, bumble bees suffer lower gen...
