The Monarch Joint Venture is a partnership of federal and state agencies, non-governmental organizations, and academic programs that are working together to support and coordinate efforts to protect the monarch butterfly migration across the lower 48 United States.

Besides monarch biology, the main thrust of the volume is monarch conservation and how our continuing study of monarch biology can help to protect this unusual and well-known species. Several papers treat the fragile habitat remaining in Mexico, where millions of the eastern North American populations of this butterfly overwinter every year.

Monarch migration, behavior, and chemical ecology have been studied for decades. Yet many aspects of monarch biology have come to light in only the past few years. These aspects include questions regarding large-scale trends in monarch population sizes, monarch interactions with pathogens and insect predators, and monarch molecular genetics and Cited by: Third, the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve, as it is known today, was established in to prot ha of temperate forest along the mountains of the Trans‐Mexican Volcanic Belt between the states of Michoacán and Mexico state (42, ha in 2 buffer zones ha in 3 core zones) (Fig.

It may be the most familiar North American butterfly, and is considered an iconic pollinator species. Its wings feature an easily recognizable black, orange Class: Insecta.

The International Conferences on the Biology of Butterflies are international gatherings, organized every four years, of primarily professional biologists who study evolutionary biology, behaviour, ecology, systematics, biogeography, genetics, developmental biology, and biodiversity conservation, with butterflies and moths as their focal study organisms.

In this book, the author, ecologist and evolutionary biologist, Anurag Agrawal, traces the life of a Monarch butterfly from an egg to a milkweed-chomping caterpillar, to a chrysalis undergoing Author: Grrlscientist.

Gail is involved in several monarch butterfly conservation projects. She coordinates the Southwest Monarch Study, monitors and trains volunteers for the Monarch Larva Monitoring Project, and tests monarchs for Ophryocystis elektroscirrha (O.e.) for Monarch Health.

Butterfly hunting is a great field activity. (Photo: Cindy Petersen) If you want to catch wild butterflies, you'll need a net. You can purchase a good butterfly net or make one. The net should be at least 24 inches deep, allowing you to trap a butterfly in the deep end of the net without harming it.
