Restoring Nature’S Relationships says
This lecture is part of our annual Bonfils-Stanton Foundation series. The 2017 theme is water!

Specialized relationships between animals and plants are the norm in nature rather than the exception. These relationships provide birds with insects and berries that disperse bloodroot seeds and pollinate goldenrod and so on. Doug Tallamy explains how specialized food relationships determine the stability and complexity of local food webs and how we can us residential landscapes to connect isolated habitat fragments and produce valuable ecosystem services

Tallamy is a professor in the department of entomology and wildlife ecology at the University of Delaware, where he has authored 85 research publications and has taught insect taxonomy, behavioral ecology, humans and nature, insect ecology and other courses for 35 years.
