DETAILS

The Hood College Graduate School will host a virtual event on March 21 in partnership with University of Delaware’s Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology.

The title of the lecture, Nature’s Best Hope will be presented by Doug Tallamy, professor of Entomology and current chair of the department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware. Tallamy will discuss the decline of global pollinators, the drop of birds in North America, and how the current landscape of the earth is causing this decline to occur.

He will also provide ways that people can prevent these events from happening, explaining that citizens are Nature’s Best Hope. Along with lecturing, Tallamy’s research goal is to understand the many ways insects interact with plants, and how this interaction can determine the diversity of animal communities.

In addition to his research and teaching, Tallamy has written 80 research articles and taught various courses such as Insect Taxonomy, Behavioral Ecology, Humans and Nature among other courses for 33 years.

This event is co-hosted by the Master of Science in Environmental Biology and MACS (Multi-Faith Alliance of Climate Stewards)
