Abstract:

"In addition to presenting the most recent basic research on this species, The Monarch Butterfly contains the first publication of data gathered and compiled by two established citizen science projects, Journey North and the Monarch Larva Monitoring Project. It also reports for the first time on two major events of long-term importance to monarch conservation and biology: the creation of a larger protected area in the Mexican over-wintering sites and a weather-related mortality event during the winter of 2002"--Jacket.
