Additional Event Details

Phillip L. Stephenson will be presenting his research on Emergent Wetland Bee Communities in the Lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley of Arkansas. Farm Bill programs like the wetland reserve program, provide ecological services including water and soil conservation as well as meeting wildlife and fisheries needs. The value of these wetlands to pollinators, in particular bees, has not been examined despite these wetlands producing large numbers of flowering plants.

Stephenson, with the Arkansas Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, Department of Biological Sciences, University of Arkansas, and Dr. David G. Krementz, USGS Arkansas Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, Department of Biological Sciences, University of Arkansas, compared species richness and diversity of bee communities between actively and passively managed palustrine (freshwater) emergent wetlands in the lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley in Arkansas throughout the growing season.
