Citizen Science Opportunity!

Ken Thompson, SCB-TO member and graduate student at the University of Toronto, is seeking help from home owners/renters that would permit him to establish small 1.5 m2  experimental populations of white clover on their property continuously from late May to early September, 2015. Ken is studying the evolution of antiherbivore defenses in urban landscapes. To learn more about his research click here.

He hopes to have populations that span a wide range of locations, as far west as Milton, as far North as Newmarket, and as far east as Whitby. He is especially interested in hearing from homeowners/renters that have lawn-space in the downtown core of Toronto.

If any members are willing to help by hosting one of these small plots, please contact Ken Thompson directly (
