    Notes: "Evaluation of flowering forbs to enhance pollinator resources in turfgrass of the Southern United States"
Abstract/Contents:"Urban and peri-urban areas serve as important forage sites for pollinating insects. However, these areas may be degraded due to lack of forage habitat or floral diversity, and they are often fragmented by transportation infrastructure, buildings, and landscapes lacking diverse plant material. The Partnership for Pollinator Friendly Lawns in the Southeastern United States (known as the Refuge Lawn Project) seeks to evaluate actions that increase pollinator forage resources in urban areas of the Southeastern U.S. Experiments to be conducted include the following: 1) Determine bloom periodicity of native and natural forbs common to lawn and amenity turfgrass settings in the Southeastern U.S. and quantify pollinating insect visitors; 2) Characterize effects of warm-season turfgrass species selection and cultural practices on forb establishment and persistence and on pollinator visits, 3) Gauge stakeholder preference for pollinator habitats within maintained turfgrass systems; leverage the teams regional expertise and stakeholder connections within each state to create best management practices and a comprehensive extension program to deliver research-based knowledge to turfgrass managers at various levels (including homeowners and professional practitioners) throughout the Southeastern U.S. Approximately ten sites per state will be selected to determine an abbreviated list of native and introduced species common in Southeastern lawns. For those species, we anticipate testing establishment methodology, tracking periodicity of blooming, and determining their attractiveness to pollinators. Stakeholder input will be sought regarding aesthetics and acceptability for inclusion in low-maintenance lawns and utility turfgrass. Results will be shared in professional presentations, best management guides, and peer-reviewed publications."
