Hort Student's Interesting Project

The goal of this project was to capture an ecological survey of pollinators and other insects that are present in an experimental plot. The plot, a graduate student's research project, was testing two specific treatments of companion plantings, one consisting of annual plants and the other were perennial plants, during spring and summer vegetable crop production. Collection times were early bloom (April 17th -May 15th), mid bloom (May 20th - June 16th) and late bloom (June 20th - July 14th). Following mounting and identification, pollinators were mounted in a wooden display box to be used as a reference for future research, education, and extension purposes.
