Doug Tallamy, Author



Doug Tallamy is the author of Bringing Nature Home: How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native Plants. In this webinar, Tallamy will focus on the expense of fighting introduced plant invasions, and he will discuss how some people question the wisdom of battling ornamental invasives--after all, they argue, if an introduced plant helps a particular butterfly, bird, or bee, why not embrace it? Using data from several studies, Tallamy answers this and related questions, showing that we can determine the overall impact of introduced plants on our ecosystems only by comparing what is gained from their use with what is lost when they replace native plant communities. Sponsored by the CISMA (Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area) Steering Committee.
