Explore the botanical world through the lens of insects as Andrew shows just how intimately intertwined plants and insects are. From pollinators and predation to dispersal methods and chemical warfare, the world of plants and insects is as wondrous as it is dangerous. There’s plenty to discover between these two vital groups of organisms even in our own backyards.
Andrew Lane Gibson is a native Ohioan and overall admirer of the natural world. He currently works as a field botanist and ecologist for the Ohio Division of Natural Areas and Preserves. Gibson is a graduate of Ohio University in plant biology and ecology, as well as Hocking College in wildlife management and biology. He’s also an ardent photographer and writer with a popular Instagram, The Buckeye Botanist, where he features his many botanical adventures and interests. You can often find him leading hikes or giving presentations to numerous naturalist organizations and groups throughout Ohio and the Midwest. Gibson’s hope is to be a catalyst for more people to appreciate and love our infinitely fascinating natural world.
