This podcast looks at how a change in our perception of landscapes has the potential to increase biodiversity and reduce the spread of invasive species, such as the destructive emerald ash borer.
The emerald ash borer and the American lawn
This podcast begins by describing the emerald ash borer and the effects that it has had on ash tree populations. It then describes personal encounters of how people perceive their landscapes from when the speaker was treating ash trees with pesticide. The final section of the podcast proposes how a change in the perception of the American landscape can improve biodiversity and reduce the spread of invasive species.
