Have native plants in your yard? Sign up for this study.

October 30, 2019

If you have native California plants in your yard, these study people want to hear from you. No fee, no home invasions, no lengthy quizzes and probably front yard only. But contact them. Eric Wood, the study supervisor, told me the study idea was sparked last spring when people saw the Painted Lady butterflies flocking to yards with native plants while avoiding the yards without native plants.  We’ve already signed up for the study!

You can check out Dr. Wood’s interesting website. However, I couldn’t find any references on it to this particular study, probably because the idea is brand new and the study has not started.

If you’re interested, just send an email to the contact in the blurb, Noriko Smallwood, who is the person actually doing the study.     [Chuck Almdale]
