The coevolution of native plants, native insects, and microbes.
Did you know that most insects depend on at least one microbe for their nutrition and survival? Dr. Alison Ravenscraft will lead ACC on a tour through the little known but vast and fascinating world of insect-microbe symbioses, focusing on how microbes help insects eat plants. She will discuss examples that involve native plants and insects you've probably seen in your backyard. You'll never see a bug the same way again!
