Author Doug Tallamy

Doug Tallamy's book is creating quite a buzz. It's a New York Times bestseller, and staff at Duke Gardens have been enthusiastically recommending it. The book gives everyone tools to use in their home landscape to build a healthier world.

Recent headlines about global insect declines,and the impending extinction of 1 million species worldwide and 3 billion fewer birds in North America are bleak reality checks about how ineffective our current landscape designs have been at sustaining the plants and animals that sustain us. Such losses are not an option if we wish to continue our current standard of living on planet Earth. The good news is that none of this is inevitable. In this online presentation, Tallamy, professor of entomology & wildlife ecology at the University of Delaware, will discuss simple steps that each of us can and must take to reverse declining biodiversity, and he will explain why we are nature's best hope.
