#328: Biodiversity: How Gardeners Can Increase the Beneficial Ecosystem (Dr. Doug Tallamy)



In This Episode of the Vegetable Gardening Show

#328: Biodiversity: How Gardeners Can Increase the Beneficial Ecosystem (Dr. Doug Tallamy) In this episode of the Vegetable Gardening show, Mike chats with Dr. Doug Tallamy from the University of Delaware about biodiversity. Dr. Tallamy will explain what biodiversity is and how home vegetable gardeners can play a role in saving and increasing the biodiversity right in their own backyards.

Dr. Tallamy is going to explain to us how biodiversity plays a role in species extinction, the various plants that play an important role in biodiversity and how adding native plants can increase the biodiversity in your own community.

From there we'll learn about the 5 great extinctions on planet earth, regenerating biodiversity around the globe, what causes biodiversity to decrease, and the little things anyone can do to increase biodiversity.

This, and so much more, on this episode of The Vegetable Gardening Show!
