 Pollinator Response to Native Plant Landscaping

This study looks at some of the ecological and social effects of native plant landscaping. We monitored pollinator activity in enhanced native plant gardens in front yards and backyards across Ithaca, NY. and measured factors that may lead to the adoption of native plant gardening by others in the community.

About Jacob

Jacob Johnston grew up outside, like many in conservation, watching ants and birds, turning over logs and rocks, and saving leaves and pine cones in shoe boxes. An undergrad trip to the tropical forest in Central America helped Jacob understand the connections between vegetation and wildlife diversity and convinced him that the answers to many conservation issues lie in vegetation management. His research seeks to bridge the built and natural environment and return habitat functionality to the vegetated landscape.
