Horticultural Society Lectures: Douglas W. Tallamy, author of Bringing Nature Home

Cylburn Arboretum Association

Doug Tallamy is the author of Bringing Nature Home, which presents the idea that everyone with access to a patch of earth can make a significant contribution toward sustaining biodiversity.


As development and subsequent habitat destruction accelerates, there are increasing pressures on wildlife populations. When native plants disappear, the local insects disappear, which impoverishes food sources for birds and other animals. In many areas, habitat destruction is already so extensive that local wildlife is in crisis, so we must engage in a national conversation about the link between healthy local ecosystems and human well-being.


As professor and chair of the department of entomology and wildlife ecology at the University of Delaware in Newark, Delaware, he has taught insect taxonomy, behavioral ecology, and other subjects. Chief among his research goals is to better understand the many ways insects interact with plants and how such interactions determine the diversity of animal communities.
