A Study of Insect Pollinators Associated with DoD TER-S Flowering Plants, Including Identification of Habitat Types Where They Co-Occur by Military Installation in the Southeastern United States - Final Report December 2010 (Legacy 09-391) (PDF)

This report identifies the known or most likely pollinators for TERS plants species found on installations in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana, thus filling an important information gap which could help with management, restoration and recovery efforts.
 

Effects of Invasives on the Distribution of Keystone Desert Plants on Military Lands - Technical Report, May 2009 (Legacy 08-411) (PDF)

The overall objective of this project is to better understand the impacts of invasive species on key components of ecosystems and pollinator communities, in order to address management concerns for desert plant communities and their associated threatened and endangered species. The study documented emphasized the integration of invasive nonnative plant invasion with other ecological processes through assessments of the spatial effects and fire dynamics of Lehmann lovegrass (Eragrostis lehmanniana) on the distribution and abundance of Palmer's agave (Agave palmeri), investigations of changes in A. palmeri pollinator community composition.
