Jeff Ollerton is one of the leading experts on pollinators, which has culminated in his new book “Pollinators & Pollination.” In its pages, he delves deep into how plants manipulate, coax, and charm pollinators into spreading their genetic material. Listen as he explains how 87.5% of all flowering plants depend on pollination, how hummingbirds once existed in Europe, and how pollinators help create that caffeinated buzz from your morning coffee.
Jeff tells us about how he created an urban pollinator oasis in his home garden, and how we can all help pollinators thrive.
