Professor of Biology Ernest Williams participated in the international conference on Monarch Biology and Conservation June 21-23 in Minneapolis,where he gave a talk on “Microclimatic benefits of the high elevation oyamel fir forest.”

 

This conference on monarchs was the fifth in a series that began with a meeting in Mexico in 1981; the last conference was held in California in 2005. Participants this year included scientists, naturalists and monarch volunteers from Mexico, Canada, Spain and Australia, as well as from throughout the U.S.

 

Williams and several coauthors also had an article published recently: “A standardized protocol for ruler-based measurement of wing length in monarch butterflies,” Danaus plexippus L. (Nymphalidae, Danainae). Tropical Lepidoptera Research 22(1):42-52.
