Plants have both beneficial and antagonistic relationships with insects: they rely on insects for pollination but also must contend with the numerous insects trying to eat them. This course will examine the interactions between plants and their insect pollinators and herbivores. We will survey the major groups of pollinators and herbivores, and discuss plant strategies for attracting pollinators and coping with herbivory. We will also cover carnivorous plants – a case where the tables are turned on herbivorous insects! The in-person field session will include time in the field observing plants and insects.
