Agroforesty and Forest Farming

Scientists are gaining an increasingly sophisticated understanding of the cumulative effect invasive species have on an ecosystem. Some, including Tree of Heaven, out compete native plants on a microscopic level rendering effects that go much deeper than the eye can see.


A pollinator is an animal that moves pollen from the male anther of a flower to the female stigma of a flower. This helps to bring about fertilization of the ovules in the flower by the male gametes from the pollen grains.

Habitat Restoration

Ephemeral pools provide important habitat support for insects and amphibious life.

To survive in a pothole, organisms must endure extreme changes in habitat. Surface temperatures can be 140 degrees Fahrenheit in summer and below freezing in winter. As water evaporates, organisms must move to larger pools or survive dehydration.
