How Well Do You Know Your Local Ecosystem?

Can you name 5 insects that can be found in your neighborhood? If you are interested enough in nature to be reading this blog, you probably can. Do you think you could answer some tougher questions? Because I have found some really tough ones. The hardest (and most fun) part may be finding out if you answered them correctly, since they are about your local ecosystem. I'm still trying to figure out how well I scored!

Before I give you the questions, I should tell you where they came from.

I recently read the book Whole Earth Discipline: An Ecopragmatist Manifesto by Stewart Brand. Mr. Brand founded the old Whole Earth Catalog. One of the editors of the Whole Earth Catalog was Peter Warshall. Mr. Warshall originally wrote this quiz 30 plus years ago. It has recently been updated by Kevin Kelly who, you guessed it, was another editor at the Whole Earth Catalog.

Without further ado, click here to see how much you know about your own backyard. And by the way, they do not ask about insects. No use in me giving you a head start!
