Florida’s Charismatic Microfauna
Presented by Paul Moler
Although the vast majority of Florida’s wildlife species are invertebrates,
most receive little attention. The important roles played by bees and
butterflies are generally well known, but many other species toil away
anonymously providing important ecosystem functions. Still others may not
be major players but are nonetheless behaviorally or morphologically
fascinating (“cool”). This program will introduce a select few of the less
familiar members of our local fauna.
