|Illinois town provides a historical foundation for today's bee <a href=http://www.canadagoosejacket-outlet2015.com>canada goose</a> research |
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. A study published in the journal Science reveals a decline in bee species since the late 1800s in West Central Illinois. In the 1970s, Marlin, a research affiliate with the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center and Illinois Natural History Survey at the U. of I., used Robertson's records as a basis for his own research on the wild bees around Carlinville, Ill., an area rich in woodlands and native <a href=http://www.sacchanelpascher2014.com>sacs chanel</a> prairie.
Marlin's research was documented in a 2001 Ecology and <a href=http://www.canadagoosejacket-outlet2015.com>canada goose outlet</a> Society article ("The Native Bee Fauna of Carlinville, Illinois, Revisited After 75 Years: a Case for Persistence"). That study focused on the 24 plant species that Robertson had found harbored the most bee species. Seventy five years after Robertson's research, Marlin <a href=http://www.cybermondaytiffanydeals.com>cyber monday tiffany sale</a> found 82 percent of the species Robertson had collected in the original study.
The new article in Science, by Laura Burkle, of Montana State University, Marlin and Tiffany Knight, of Washington University, shows a considerable decline in the number of bee species in the Carlinville area since both <a href=http://www.tiffanyoutlet-2014.com>tiffany outlet</a> the Robertson and Marlin studies. On spring woodland wildflowers they found only half of the bee species that Robertson originally documented.
"This is an indication that something dramatic has happened to the landscape," Marlin said.
"Carlinville is one of the most referenced communities in the world in the bee literature," Marlin said. "It is clear that Charles Robertson's foundation provides an invaluable resource for modern comparative studies on bee species and their interactions with the environment."
