National Moth Week is a global-scale community science project celebrating the importance and beauty of moths and other nocturnal biodiversity. This lecture highlights the essential roles moths play in ecosystems as pollinators, links in food webs, decomposers and their importance to humans. Learn about conservation threats to moths and how to attract them for close observation. We will also discuss how and where to participate in and contribute data to the National Moth Week project.

Elena Tartaglia is a co-founder of National Moth Week and a professor of Biology at Bergen Community College in NJ. Tartaglia earned her Ph.D. from Rutgers University and has worked in science outreach and environmental education since 2005, including interning for Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve. She is an expert on moths of the family Sphingidae, having studied various aspects of their ecology and behavior. Her current research focuses on long-term ecological change and plant invasions in urban ecosystems.
