Gardens as Pollinator Habitat: Limitations, Potential and Context
Tuesday, March 14, 1 – 2:15 p.m. CST
Together, flowering plants and flower-visiting insects make up a third of the Earth’s species. In this talk, we will trace the relationship between flowers and insects from the primordial forests of the Cretaceous to your backyard garden. Along the way, we will discuss the limitations and potential of gardens as pollinator habitat, and we will explore how gardening might be reimagined as a cooperative, landscape-scale practice that could change the ecological meaning of cities and suburbs.
Speaker: Douglas Sponsler
