    Earth Day & Bird Appreciation Month - take a deeper look at the biological field studies. They are incomplete. It does not address their food chain (insects) and habitat needs (cavities, shrub, grasses). Phoebe Parker-Shames’ (only ecologist-researcher on cannabis found) research on cannabis has no data ready to address long-term climate change or affect on wildlife. Noted entomologist/author Doug Tallamy new book the Nature of Oaks is an entire book that focuses on changes in each month on a single oaks’ life. When asked if he could share data on the effect of insects and cannabis grow relationships, his reply was “I have nothing”. The data is not out to explore yet. – oaks are so valuable.
