Sci-Cafe: Burning Butterfly Questions – The Elfin in the Room with Robert Meyer

October 28 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Robert Meyer, a biologist with Tall Timbers will join us to discuss his ongoing research into the relationship between fire and the frosted elfin butterfly.

The frosted elfin butterfly (Callophrys iris) is in decline across its range. Luckily, we have the best known population in our own backyard (the Apalachicola National Forest). This presentation will cover some of the novel efforts taken to understand the ecology of the frosted elfin. It will also look into how fire affects that ecology in sandhill ecosystems.
