Arid Restoration Pollinator

Titre : POLLINATOR RESPONSE TO RESTORATION (Arid western US)

Agence de Soutien : National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA)

Identification : ARZW-2017-06564

Durée : Feb 1, 2018 - Jan 31, 2023

Organisation bénéficiaire : NORTHERN ARIZONA UNIVERSITY FLAGSTAFF,AZ 86011

Descriptif
We propose to address critical knowledge gaps to support the development of pollinator-dependent plant materials for use in the rapidly growing"restoration economy," where agencies, nonprofits, and businesses collaborate to restore degraded ecosystems to promote agriculture, tourism, conservation, fire resilience, multi-use landscapes, and more.We propose the largest to-date provenance trial in the arid western US, including nearly 50,000 plants of 12 plant species to develop seed zone guidelines and predict plant-pollinator response to climate change. We will also initiate a regional seed production trial of 105,000 plants to spearhead a farm-based seed development program for pollinator plants across three states.

Objectifs
We propose to address critical knowledge gaps to support the development of pollinator-dependent plant materials for use in the rapidly growing "restoration economy", where agencies, nonprofits, and businesses collaborate to restore degraded ecosystems to promote agriculture, tourism, conservation, fire resilience, and multi-use landscapes. We propose the largest provenance trial in the arid western US that includes nearly 50,000 plants of 12 plant species to develop seed zone guidelines and predict plant-pollinator response to climate change. We will also initiate a regional seed production trial of 200,000 plants to spearhead a farm-based seed development program for pollinator plants across three states. Involving multiple stakeholders, this project will result in data-driven best practice guidelines for selection, combination, and cultivation of plants and provenances for large-scale restoration seed production among agriculturalists working to supply restoration professionals with needed forb seed to promote pollinator communities. ?
