Scents, Color and Beauty: A Biologist Interprets Nature’s Palette
Time & Location
About the Event
The wonderful traits that typify plants are largely a result of insect-plant interactions. Join this virtual walk through the native habitats at Ulistac Natural Area in Santa Clara with entomologist and Biology Professor Janice Edgerly-Rooks. We will discover interesting and often surprising phenomena such as: how plants protect themselves from the hungry mouths of some insects but, at the same time, seek to attract others, how do flowers communicate by using colors and patterns—note that some of these traits are completely hidden from our human eyes!, and why do some flowers smell so sweet?
This event is sponsored by Saved By Nature and Ulistac Natural Area Restoration & Education Project (UNAREP) a community partnership with Virtual Photo Walks to bring you virtual nature from the safety and comfort of your home.
