Description: Doug Tallamy is Professor of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware. Specialized relationships between animals and plants are the norm in nature rather than the exception. These relationships provide our birds with insects and berries, disperse our bloodroot seeds, pollinate our goldenrod, and so on. Plants that evolved in concert with local animals provide for their needs better than plants that evolved elsewhere. Tallamy will explain why this is so, and why our yards and gardens are essential parts of the ecosystems that sustain us. Managing landscapes today carries both moral and ecological responsibilities that we can no longer ignore. No registration required. Admission is free for HSM members with a current membership card.
