Bringing Nature Home,
How Native Plants Sustain Wildlife in Our Gardens

Douglas W. Tallamy

“Increasing the percentage of natives in suburbia is a grassroots solution to the extinction crisis....
As gardeners and stewards of our land, we have never been so empowered — and the ecological stakes have never been so high.”

What you plant in your own backyard does make a difference. Douglas Tallamy approaches this issue from the perspective of a practicing entomologist, and his book has gained national attention. His conclusions are both obvious and startling.
