Scientist Lecture: When Good Mutualisms Go Bad – The Complexities of Plant Pollinator Interactions @ Holden Arboretum
Oct 17 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Plant-pollinator mutualisms are often portrayed as altruistic or at least mutually beneficial. Yet, nature is complex, and both pollinators and plants often ‘cheat’ the system. Ison’s talk will focus on examples of how pollinators and plants exploit their apparent mutualistic relationships. She will present examples ranging from nectar robbing and pollen theft by bees to deceptive plants that ‘trick’ insects into pollinating them. Ison will also discuss how dramatic declines in wild bee populations are jeopardizing many of our native wildflowers.

Scientist Lecture: Biodiversity and Function in Diverse Vegetation Systems @ Holden Arboretum
Nov 14 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Sabrina Russo’s research seeks to understand biodiversity on our planet  by describing the ecological processes that determine how species interact, why certain species occur in some habitat types or geographic regions and not in others, and how diversity is generated in the first place. To answer these, Russo conducts research in some of the most species-rich places on Earth, the rain forests of the Amazon and Borneo, as well as in grasslands and croplands of Nebraska.
