It is specialized relationships that provide our birds with insects and berries, that disperse our bloodroot seeds, that pollinate our goldenrod, and so on. Native plants, in particular, provide wildlife with their basic needs better than non-native plants can. Tallamy will explain why specialized food rela-tionships determine the stability and complexity of the local food webs that support animal diversity, why our yards and gardens are essential parts of the ecosystems that sustain us and how we can use our home landscapes to improve wildlife habitat and make our landscapes living ecosystems again. Doug Tallamy is a professor in the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware for the past 36 years. He is an award-winning researcher, speaker and author, who focuses on better understanding the many ways insects interact with plants and how such interactions determine the diversity of animal communities. He is well known for his books Bringing Nature Home: How Native Plants Sustain Wildlife in Our Gardens and The Living Landscape, co-authored with Rick Darke, which will be for sale. Sponsored by: Cavano's Perennials, Inc., The Mill of Belair, & Ecotone, Inc.
