"A fascinating study of the trees, shrubs, and vines that feed the insects, birds, and other animals in the suburban garden." --The New York Times   As development and habitat destruction accelerate, there are increasing pressures on wildlife populations. In Bringing Nature Home, Douglas W. Tallamy reveals the unbreakable link between native plant species and native wildlife--native insects cannot, or will not, eat alien plants. When native plants disappear, the insects disappear, impoverishing the food source for birds and other animals.   But there is an important and simple step we can all take to help reverse this alarming trend: everyone with access to a patch of earth can make a significant contribution toward sustaining biodiversity by simply choosing native plants. By acting on Douglas Tallamy's practical and achievable recommendations, we can all make a difference.  … (mer)

A book that everyone concerned about the environment or global warming should have on their bookshelf or at least check out of the library and read. ( )

How native plants sustain wildlife in our gardens
  jhawn | Jul 31, 2017 |
Tallamy makes a strong case for homeowners to incorporate native plants in their yards since native ecosystems are so fragmented by development that their ability to sustain native insect and bird populations is waning. Alien species that are typically planted by homeowners do not fulfill the same functions as native plant species. Hopefully people will abandon alien plants in favor of native plants before it is too late. ( )

This is one of those paradigm shifting books. So, do you want the local insects to eat holes in your leaves? Resoundingly, YES! If you want a healthy ecosystem, you have to encourage all of the local life; you can't be particular and selective. And to keep the whole thing churning correctly, you can't displace the traditional foods of even the smallest members of the system. Witness the Monarch butterfly crisis because farmers have been eradicating milkweed from much of the US heartland. Grow those weeds. More importantly, grow all the local plants that the local animals rely on. One of the reasons some imported varieties do so outsize well is that they don't have their native nibblers here. That's not a good ecosystem.
This is a must-read for all people concerned with the ecosphere remaining alive. ( )

Gardeners enjoy their hobby for many reasons: a love of plants and nature, the satisfaction that comes from beautifying home and community, the pleasures of creative effort, the desire to collect rare or unusual species, and the healthful benefits of exercise and outdoor air. (Chapter 1)
Occasionally we encounter a concept so obvious and intuitive that we have never thought to articulate it, so close to our noses that we could not see it, so entangled with our everyday experiences that we did not recognize it. (Preface)

The 2009 edition, titled "Bringing nature home : how you can sustain wildlife with native plants," says it is updated and expanded from the 2007 "Bringing Nature Home: How Native Plants Sustain Wildlife in Our Gardens," but a line by line comparison shows the books to be identical. The photos and tables have not been changed, except for slight adjustments in formatting. The only expansion is Appendix 1. The original book lists four regions - Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, Southwest, and Pacific Northwest. The expanded version adds lists for New England and Midwest and Eastern Great Plains. And these lists copy many of the same species listed in adjacent regions. The Updated and Expanded label is bogus.
