An assessment of the native invertebrate pollinator community and the plants they use in native prairie and restored grasslands of the Conservation Reserve Program in eastern North Dakota

1) Refine the pollinator model to allow for the estimation of the number of hives that can be supported in any given landscape setting 2) Extend the pollinator model to address interactions between weather, land cover, and bees that affect levels of honey production 3) Integrate the findings from the USDA-ARS field study into the pollinator model to refine forecasts of how land-use features in the PPR affect national agricultural pollination services [see Narratives for more information.]
