This 12 month Keystone species calendar was designed by local artist Daisy Hebb and hand selected by NYT bestselling author and professor of entomology, Doug Tallamy. Keystone species are native species that uphold our ecosystems and an ecosystem would not be the same without them. What makes a keystone species? Generally it is how many other species eat the plant. Using caterpillars as an indicator, because they're soft, fatty, protein rich meals, entomology professor Doug Tallamy has identified such high performing host plant species in our ecosystems. These (all-native) keystone species support more than others - and they all out perform non-natives.
