Insects: The Little Things that Run the World

Meets:Sa from 11 AM to 12:50 PM
Location:Main House Lecture Room 1
Instructor:Douglas Tallamy
Fee: $20.00
Insect populations have declined 45% globally since 1974. The most alarming part of this statistic is that we don’t seem to care, despite the fact that a world without insects is a world without humans! So how do we build beautiful landscapes that support the pollinators, herbivores, detritivores, predators, and parasitoids that run the ecosystems we depend on? Dr. Tallamy will remind us of the many essential roles insects play and describe the simple changes we must make in our landscapes and our attitudes to keep insects on the ground, in the air, and yes, on our plants.

This event is part of the Mt. Cuba Center Lecture Series.
