The Washington County Master Gardener Association is hosting a fascinating presentation on ecological diversity. Biological diversity is at the core of a resilient Earth, and Dr. Tom Kaye will address the importance of biological diversity for the ecosystem and human health, using examples from the scientific literature. Some central themes of this discussion include how we measure and restore diversity in the landscape, the ways in which biodiversity improves ecological functions, and the various means by which human health is affected by this diversity.

Dr. Tom Kaye is the founder and Executive Director of the Institute for Applied Ecology (IAE). IAE is a nonprofit organization with a mission to conserve native habitats and species through research, restoration, and education. Dr. Kaye is also a courtesy Associate Professor in the Department of Botany and Plant Pathology at Oregon State University. He conducts research on rare species reintroductions, habitat restoration, plant invasions, and plant population responses to climate change, and engages prison inmates in conservation through the Sagebrush in Prisons Project. Sourcing native plants for restoration is a key area of interest, research, and publication for Dr. Kaye. He serves as a Commission Member on the IUCN SSC Seed Conservation Specialist Group.
