Garden Ecosystems – Research
- What plant species are well adapted to your site location?
- Identify the characteristics of native and non-native species. Which fare better throughout the course of the season or in the face of extreme weather conditions?
- How does a plant respond to a changing environment and climate? What mechanisms do certain plants have in place to deal more readily with environmental stress, such as drought or changing temperatures?
- What are some sustainable gardening practices you are doing and/or can try in the garden?
