Bringing Nature Home

No other book is as responsible as this one for inspiring the Wild Yards Project. Tallamy is so convincing with his data, so readable, and so mind-blowing in his revelations about the relationship between plants, bugs and birds, that once i read it, there was no going back. “Bringing Nature Home” simply and powerfully lays down the argument that the cornerstone of biodiversity is insects (focusing but not restricted to caterpillars), and insects co-evolve with plants. Take away the plants, you lose the insects, and you create what is, essentially, a dead zone, no matter how green, and no matter where you live. Funny, clear and revelatory, this book is required reading for anyone who doubts that wilderness is now a matter of individual and collective creation, and it begins in our own back yards.      More Info / Buy
