Nature's Best Hope book by Douglas Tallamy
Does it all depend on a little green caterpillar?

Some writers have a way of saying things that helps me "get it" the first time. One of those writers is Douglas Tallamy, the University of Delaware professor, entomologist, and ecologist, whose latest book, "Nature's Best Hope" came out late last year. (Timber Press, 2019).

He offers ecological shorthand for those of us who don't want to take a lifetime to understand what we can do to slow the loss of plants, birds, and insects.
