Abstract/Contents:"Pollination is fundamental to healthy ecosystems, and global pollination services are worth over $200 billion annually. However, landscape fragmentation, urban growth, and ecosystem degradation threaten insect pollinator biodiversity. Gauging the effect of landscapes on pollinators requires the identification of insect richness and abundance, but studies that evaluate sampling methodologies over established turfgrassforb habitats are scant. Here, we present findings regarding the effectiveness of two sampling methodologies: netting and pan traps. Methods were compared over bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon) mixed with white clover (Trifolium repens). A field experiment was conducted in Starkville, MS and Athens, GA within four sites of white clover (15 by 25 m) spaced a minimum of 100 m at each location. Every site had six replicates of traps in white, blue, and yellow, with 18 traps per site, and traps were installed every 5 m for a total of 72 traps per location. Weather data were collected from nearby stations. The traps remained active for 8 h (8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.). Netting evaluations occurred for 10 min thrice per day (8:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 4:00 p.m.) by walking in a zig-zag pattern between traps. Pollinators were stored in 70 v/v ethanol and identified to the furthest level. We collected a total of 3,820 individuals belonging to 31 genera. Toxomerus, Apis, Halictus, Bombus, and Melissodes were respectively the most abundant genera observed visiting T. repens. Netting resulted in 2,724 individuals and trapping in 1,096 individuals. The netting methodology caught the highest abundance of pollinators. Pan traps caught the highest abundance of sweat bees. The combination of both methodologies is more effective to evaluate pollinator richness and abundance. White clover and its attraction may not be equal to native plants. Thus, these results provide a foundation for further consideration of plant phenology contributions to pollinators and their abundance."
