Research Sponsored By: Center for Natural Lands Management
Principal Investigator: Jonathan Bakker
Project Description
This multi-year project would inform Taylor’s checkerspot butterfly (Euphydryas editha taylori – “TCB”) recovery efforts by providing information on 1) variation in host plant phenology, 2) the effects of three host species on larval performance, and 3) how host species effects vary with soil conditions.
