Images of the project Pollination of the soybean: a study on different scales
Images of the project Pollination of the soybean: a study on different scales, one of the projects that Syngenta supports through an agreement with the CONICET. Their results are going away to present in the form of two p³sters and one chats in a symposium in the next VI Reuni³n Binacional de Ecologa who becomes in September in Iguazº.
In the project a group conformed by several students of degree participates, Agronomists, Lic. in Environmental Sciences, a doctoral scholarship holder and one posdoctoral, and other educational/investigators of the Faculty of Agronomy of the GRAPE and CONICET. Altogether 25 people participated in the works some.
Image 1: Edge of a lot of wheat in the site of study in Carlos Casares (Inner Pampas). The edges of culture and other handled areas of the landscape cannot act as refuge of plants and animal that of another form would not be present.
Image 2: The vegetation of the edge of the culture can provide food and refuge to different groups from organisms. In this image four species of insects are observed feeding itself on the flowers of a bishop's weed in the edge of a maize culture in Carlos Casares. The project has special interest in floral visitors as these.
Image 3: The culture edges help to maintain populations of beneficial insects, as this native bee that get ready to pollinate the flowers of a chapter of sunflower in Carlos Casares.
Image 4: The description of the diversity of pollenizers is realised with field techniques that they include, in some cases, the rational capture of insects. In the image a double network (designed from a gastronomical clamp) in action is seen.
