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.]

It has been well documented that restored wetlands in the Prairie Pothole Region of North America do store carbon. However, the net benefit of carbon sequestration in wetlands in terms of a reduction in global warming forcing has often been questioned because of potentially greater emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) such as nitrous oxide (N2O) and methane (CH4). We compared gas emissions (N2O, CH4, carbon dioxide [CO2]) and soil moisture and temperature from eight cropland and eight restored grassland wetlands in the Prairie Pothole Region from May to October, 2003, to better understand the atmospheric carbon mitigation potential of restored wetlands. Results show that carbon dioxide contributed the most (90%)...
The ILM community includes researchers from the USGS Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center (NPWRC). The ScienceBase community space will be used to catalog and aggregate important information resouces for the ILM, including data derived from associated long-term projects. Web services may be used to provide cataloged information to other applications, including websites and visualization tools.

ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact
