Intro to the Ecology of Galls


Note the "Location" below which indicates if a particular class meets online or in person. Price differences may apply. Confirmation emails will contain specific logistics.

Fascinating adaptations, galls are highly modified tissues in plants caused by arthopods, fungi, viruses, or bacteria. Surprisingly little is known about the biology and ecology of galls, making them a prime topic for naturalists to study. This class will focus on the ecology of galls created by wasps, midges, aphids, psyllids, and more in the northeastern U.S. Participants will receive some tips on how to identify some of the more common species around so you can begin to study them come spring.
