Class: Insect Pollinators in Our Garden
This course is designed to allow participants to evaluate plant-insect interactions in gardens from an ecological perspective. Among the factors that will be discussed are the role of disease and pesticides on pollinator’s survival and how these factor could interact with plant species and produce certain outcomes. By the end of this 4-hour course, participants will be able to provide a rationale as to why species richness and diversity are important to gardens, evaluate the effects of human interventions on pollinators, communicate scientific ideas regarding some of the challenges insect pollinators face in the gardens and design a garden using an ecological perspective to maximize pollinator species richness and diversity.
