North American Monarch Butterfly Ecology and Conservation


The Role of Modeling in Monarch Butterfly Research and Conservation

Tyler John Grant and Steven P Bradbury

ReviewModels are an integral part of the scientific endeavor, whether
they be conceptual, mathematical, statistical, or simulation models.
Models of appropriate complexity facilitate comprehension and improve
understanding of the variables driving system ...

Design implications for surveys to monitor monarch butterfly
population trends

Karen E Kinkead , Tyler M Harms , Stephen J Dinsmore , Paul W Frese
and Kevin T Murphy

Original ResearchThe Iowa Multiple Species Inventory and Monitoring
(MSIM) Program includes a protocol for monitoring butterfly density on
conservation lands using transects. Most data are collected from sites
chosen randomly; additional sites are chosen non-randomly ...

The importance of shifting disturbance regimes in monarch butterfly
decline and recovery

Nathan L Haan and Douglas A Landis

PerspectiveThe Eastern migratory monarch butterfly has declined in
recent decades, partly because widespread adoption of
herbicide-resistant corn and soybean has nearly eliminated common
milkweed from crop fields in the US Midwest. We argue that in addition
to ...

Monarch butterfly distribution and breeding ecology in Idaho and
Washington

Beth Waterbury , Ann Potter and Leona Svancara

Original ResearchStudies of monarch butterflies (Danaus plexippus) and
their milkweed (Asclepias spp.) host plants in North America have
focused primarily on monarch populations ranging east of the Rocky
Mountains. We report the first systematic assessment of monarch ...

PATTERNS OF MONARCH SITE OCCUPANCY AND DYNAMICS IN IOWA

Stephen J Dinsmore , Rachel Ann Vanausdall , Kevin Thomas Murphy ,
Karen E Kinkead and Paul W Frese

Original ResearchThe monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) is the focus
of large-scale habitat restoration efforts because of recent
population declines. From 2006-2017 we monitored monarchs at >400
sites throughout Iowa to link site occupancy and ...

Modeling Current and Future Potential Distributions of Milkweeds and
the Monarch Butterfly in Idaho

Leona K Svancara , John T Abatzoglou and Beth Waterbury

Original ResearchMonarch butterflies (Danaus plexippus) are widespread
in North America but have experienced large rangewide declines. Causes
of recent declines likely involve multiple biotic and abiotic
stressors including climate change and loss and degradation of ...

Systematic ReviewThe migratory monarch butterflies (Danaus plexippus)
of eastern North America have undergone large-scale declines, which
may be attributable to a variety of underlying causes. The uncertainty
about the primary cause of declines and whether individual ...

Monarch Butterflies Show Differential Utilization of Nine Midwestern
Milkweed Species

Victoria Marie Pocius , John M. Pleasants , Diane M. Debinski , Keith
G. Bidne, Richard L. Hellmich , Steven P. Bradbury and Sue L. Blodgett

Original ResearchMonarch butterfly overwintering numbers have declined
over the past 20 years. Restoring habitat that includes milkweeds, the
only host plants for larval monarch butterflies, is necessary to
increase monarch numbers within the breeding range. The ...
