New York Times Bestseller Nature s Best Hope
Ecology - New York Times Bestseller Nature s Best Hope; A New Approach to Conservation That starts in Your Yard is the new book by Doug Tallamy, Professor and Chair of the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware.
From the book's Amazon website "Douglas W. Tallamy's first book, Bringing Nature Home, awakened thousands of readers to an urgent situation: wildlife populations are in decline because the native plants they depend on are fast disappearing. His solution? Plant more natives. In this new book, Tallamy takes the next step and outlines his vision for a grassroots approach to conservation. Nature's Best Hope shows how homeowners everywhere can turn their yards into conservation corridors that provide wildlife habitats. Because this approach relies on the initiatives of private individuals, it is immune from the whims of government policy. Even more important, it's practical, effective, and easy—you will walk away with specific suggestions you can incorporate into your own yard."
Tallamy shows how to transform yards into ecological wonderlands full of vibrant life. Your local birds, butterflies, and plants will thank you for learning from his wise advice."—David George Haskell, author of The Forest Unseen, Pulitzer finalist, and The Songs of Trees. The following Smithsonian Magazine article has a link to an April 2020 Zoom webinar in which Dr. Tallamy talks about how to rewild your landscape.
