Explore the insects through the lens of botany as Andrew Gibson shows how intimately intertwined plants and insects are. Focusing on some of the world's most intricate and beautiful plants, orchids, Andrew will take us through the world of Ohio's orchids and discuss their ecology, secrets, and relationships with their insect pollinators.
Most people think of the tropics or other exotic locations for orchids, but they occur literally just about everywhere on Earth. In Ohio, we have almost 50 native species in all shapes, colors, and sizes. Humans aren't the only creatures to hold these fascinating plants in high esteem. Insects do too!
