It will take even more time for the ground-breaking work of scientists like the University of Delaware’s Doug Tallamy to take root. The research of the UD professor and chair of the department of entomology and wildlife ecology repeatedly makes the indispensable connection between native plants and their impact on the environment and on the survival of local and migratory wildlife.
