Study Shows How Prescribed Burns Benefit Bees

This article intrigued me since I had previously participated in prescription burns for the University of Nebraska in Omaha.

All the studies on the benefits of prescription burns were more related to the forbs and the biodiversity thereof.  This is not to say the studies regarding fauna were not there. I was just not aware of them.

For instance, I would have expected that abundance in plant biodiversity would equate to a similar abundance in insect biodiversity, especially in pollinators.  It is great to have a better understanding of this process and why the pollinators might benefit from this method of land management.  This is important now more than ever as our pollinators are in decline.  It is a good read and I highly recommend it.
