Title: Survey of the insect pollinator community at 15 sites in the French Broad River watershed, collected in 2011
Abstract: We asked how pollinator abundance and community composition varied with distance from logging roads and elevation in old (logged > 90 years ago) and young (logged 20-40 years ago) southern Appalachian forests (USA). At 15 previously logged sites along an elevation gradient, insect pollinators were sampled at 5 distances from logging roads during summer 2010 and spring 2011 using pan traps.
