“Bringing Nature Home” Author at Carey
Friday, July 30 @ 7:00 p.m.
As a child, Douglas W. Tallamy spent his summer days exploring wild places. Once, he discovered a small pond filled with pollywogs and took great delight in following their growth. Then one day, a bulldozer buried the young toads and all the other living treasures within that pond, an act that forever influenced Tallamy’s life. Currently Professor and Chair of the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware, Talamy has devoted his life to learning how insects interact with plants how such interactions determine the diversity of animal communities. He will speak on this and related topics covered in his book, Bringing Nature Home.
