Anna Abney, M.S. in biology graduate candidate, will present her research findings on the effect of burn timing on insect assemblages in a recent prairie reconstruction. Refreshments will be provided.
Prescribed burning is a common management practice in prairie reconstructions, but many entomologists are concerned about the impact of burning on insect populations. The effect of fire on insects has been studied on remnant prairies, but little research has been done on reconstructed prairies, especially the first years after planting. This study examines how spring and fall prescribed burns affect the abundance and community composition of grasshoppers (Acrididae) and ground beetles (Carabidae) in a recent prairie planting.
