Oregon's Unsung Pollinators with Clint Burfitt, Program Manager for Insect Pest Prevention and Management, and Plant Protection and Conservation Programs at the Oregon Department of Agriculture

Recent declines in honeybee and some native bee populations have created an increased public awareness about the role of pollinators in crop production and native plant reproduction. This presentation seeks to increase awareness of other lesser-recognized pollinator groups, such as beetles, flies, and moths. While these insects may not be functionally adapted to pollination in the same way as bees, their behaviors create mutualistic relationships that are important in maintaining native plant habitats. By exploring the functional ecology of several non-hymenoptera pollinator species, you will discover new facets of the exciting microcosm of insect-plant interactions.
