Presentation Transcript

  1. Potential Effect of Climate Change on Pollination

  2. On average, the onset of spring snowmelt in the Rockies now occurs approximately two weeks earlierthan in the late 1970s. What may have caused this to occur?

  3. Spring snowmelt is occurring earlier in the Rocky Mountains. Why would this confuse bees??

  4. Model projections of average temperature and precipitation changes in Illinois for mid-century (2040-2059) and end-of-century (2080-2099) indicate that summer in Illinois is expected to feel progressively more like summers currently experienced in states south and west.

  5. Which may help pollinators to survive climate change? Monoculture Vs. Polyculture
