Description

Description: Simply put:  all life on earth depends on insects, for more reasons than most people realize.  This talk will explore some of the immeasurably important ways that insects keep ecosystems functioning.  Nutrient recycling, pollination services, and interactions with other creatures will be reviewed.  Lastly, there will be a discussion of the ways in which we can conserve much needed insect diversity in our own yards.
