Project Title: Biodiversity in residential yards: influence of native plant landscaping
I am a new graduate student in the Wood lab studying urban ecology and conservation biology. I plan on researching how native landscaped residential yards affect biodiversity, particularly birds and insects. I hope that my research helps promote yard conversions for habitat conservation as well as public awareness and appreciation of wildlife.
