How Insects Use Plants

Bugs are excellent botanists as they demonstrate the remarkable ability to locate their often very specific host plants. Join botanist and entomologist Adam Kohl for a tour through Garden in the Woods from the eyes of an arthropod. Discuss and observe the various ways insects and their relatives use native plants, including galls, herbivory, shelter, sonic amplification, and flower visitation. Walk away with a fresh understanding of how native plants are the building blocks of biodiversity.
