This is THE book for those who love nature, gardening, birds, butterflies, insects and care about the future of the environment. As man has made the world a smaller place, the environmental changes have increased. We love those ornamental beauties in our yards, parks and thoroughfares. But at what cost? Tallamy enlightens us as to the impact of non native plants. Have you been to a park or green space that was quiet of birds? Why? Look around and be aware there are no insects to feed the birds. Many 'alien' plants don't have their usual insects pestertring them. That is why gardeners like those plants. But if we don't have plants attracting insects, our birds and other wild life have less to eat and we have less to enjoy. Each tiny postage stamp yard makes a difference. Beautiful photographs, well presented information with locale plant guides to he;p the home owner be able to go NATIVE.

Enjoyable & eye-opening read about the plant choices gardeners make and how they impact the health of their local environment and wildlife. The authors research shows that adding some native plants really impacts the native insects, which then has direct consequences up through the food chain (don't forget, many birds live on bugs). Includes nice plant lists in the appendix for different parts of the country and a butterfly host list.

This is an eye-opening book for anyone who is at all interested in bringing back the biodiversity in their sterile gardens, yards, homes, fields, neighborhoods and country. Douglas W. Tallamy shows how a little interest breeds knowledge and compassion for all living things that our planet relies on for survival. His book goes in depth on how we have created a non-functional world of mowed lawns, invasive species, and sterlie environments that are bringing thousands of species to extinction. He goes on to tell how you can make a difference by what you plant in your yard and the positive effects of creating a ecologically diverse world.

"Review" by , "The book evolved out of a set of principles...So the message is loud and clear: gardeners could slow the reate of extinction by planting natives in their yards. This simple revelation about the food web — and it is an intricate web, not a chain — is the driving force in Bringing Nature Home. A fascinating study of the trees, shrubs, and vines that feed the insects, birds, and other animals in the suburban garden."
"Review" by , "An informative and engaging account of the ecological interactions between plants and wildlife, this fascinating handbook explains why exotic plants can hinder and confuse native creatures, from birds and bees to larger fauna."
