This presentation was Part 1 of The Ohio State University webinar series on Pollinator Habitat 101: An Introduction and Refresher. Dr. Tallamy is a PhD of entomology and wildlife ecology and professor at the University of Delaware. He has written many books, most notably, “Nature’s Best Hope” and “The Nature of Oaks”.
