IDEAS presents Networks for Life: Your Role in Stitching the Natural World Together Comments

Join Dr. Douglas Tallam as he discusses how biodiversity is essential to sustaining human societies because it is other living things that run our ecosystems. Yet, throughout the U.S. we have fragmented the habitats that support biodiversity by the way we have landscaped our cities, suburbs, and farmland. This is a problem because isolated habitats cannot support populations large enough to survive normal environmental stresses. We can reconnect viable habitats by expanding existing greenways, building riparian corridors, and by changing the landscaping paradigm that dominates our yards and corporate landscapes. Replacing half the area that is now in barren lawn with plants that are best at supporting food webs would create over 20 million acres of connectivity and go a long way toward sustaining biodiversity in the future.

There will be a book signing following the lecture.

Speaker: Dr. Douglas Tallam, Professor, Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology, at the     University of Delaware

Date/Time: Thursday, November 14, 2013

Time: 7:30 p.m. - 9 p.m.
