butterfly enclosure ideas
I recognize that this is a ‘beemonitoring’ group – but thought I would throw out the following query as I have found you all to be quite resourceful:
I am looking for information on construction of a temporary (~ 2 months) large outdoor butterfly enclosure (~ 20 m x 10m X 2 m high) to be installed on a short-grass prairie for research purposes. Does anyone have experience/information on suitable low-cost materials and design for such a flight cage for small skipper-sized butterflies?
Happy New Year, all!
I am writing to see if anyone can help me on short notice, with some ideas or references. I am collaborating with several mathematicians and other biologists on a proposal that seeks to model the effects of climate change on habitats and organisms. I would like to tie in my future work with native bees and pollination. Does anyone know of any data sets or publications relating to this, particularly for the mid-Atlantic region or for blueberry pollinators?
Thanks and apologies for the lack of “homework” on this. I was asked to participate just before the holidays and the proposal is due on Feb. 11.
