2015-NPW-04-13-Bob-Stewart-talk-web2015-NPW-04-13-BeePollinatingIdentifying native plants is very important. But to understand what has shaped their color and structure it would be helpful to know who pollinates them. Much research needs to be done, but Bob will report on some of the most interesting studies while utilizing his close up photographs.
