39/4113. The Use Of Water In Plants

What Can Gardeners Learn From Biosphere 2?

Richard asks Travis. You study phenology and water usage in plants and green roofs. How do these things apply to the typical gardener? Travis opines. Many relate plants to their environment and that's the same whether in someone's backyard or in a forest and trying to manage the forest. The end result is we want to change our environment, we want to create a better environment. For gardening it might be creating biological diversity, for your landscape it might be changing the temperature around your house, for the forest it might be changing the way water is processed to our streams. No matter where, individual action can go a long way, a lot of little gardens can add up to a big change in our landscapes. It doesn't matter small or big regardless the part of the country, the principles are the same.

This has been a very different show and experience. Richard has learned a lot. Richard thanks Travis for spending time with us and our audience and for the interesting science lessons.
