Landscaping for Biodiversity, A Plant-Insect Perspective
June 15 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The Smithsonian Environmental Research Center presents this evening lecture.
Speaker Karin Burghardt will outline ways that our personal decisions (in gardens, yards, parks, and other green spaces) can shape plant-animal interactions, particularly whether plant-eating insects can complete their life cycles. And while insect pests often get a bad rap in gardens, a wide array of insects are quietly performing essential functions for food webs and ecosystems.
