The Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) will host a
webinar entitled "Pollinator Attraction: How do non-native plants change
pollination of berry plants across Alaska?" on Tuesday, 20 August 2013
from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. AKDT. The webinar will be presented by Dr.
Christa Mulder & PhD student Katie Spellman from the University of
Alaska Fairbanks.

What happens when a new plant species comes into an area, and it is more
attractive to pollinators than anything else around? Does it improve
pollination of the native plants that are already there? Or does it lure
away pollinators, or lead to the delivery of the wrong kind of pollen?
Christa Mulder and Katie Spellman will discuss their research
investigating these questions following the arrival of a non-native
plant, white sweetclover (Melilotus albus), in Alaskan berry (Vaccinium
spp.) picking habitats. This webinar will discuss their field
experiments and their efforts to model future interactions between
invasive sweetclover and native berries in a changing climate using
herbarium specimen and citizen science observations.
