A new study by University of Georgia ecologists, just published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, has found that winter-breeding butterflies are at increased risk of disease, a finding that could apply to other migratory species as well. Planting tropical milkweed, available at many garden centers, makes the problem worse.
Odum School Dean John Gittleman, who studies large-scale evolutionary and ecological questions about biodiversity and conservation with a focus on mammals, was quoted in Science in an article about a new study of carnivore population regulation.
