Good article.
I liked the part where they suggested it as a possible contributor to the bee colony collapse problem.

"They found that the protein content of goldenrod pollen has declined by a third since the industrial revolution-and the change closely tracks with the rise in CO2. Scientists have been trying to figure out why bee populations around the world have been in decline, which threatens many crops that rely on bees for pollination. Ziska's paper suggested that a decline in protein prior to winter could be an additional factor making it hard for bees to survive other stressors."
