Odum School of Ecology Assistant Research Scientist Andy Davis has been interviewed by several news outlets about a paper he recently published in the journal Insect Conservation and Diversity. Davis found no evidence of a decline in monarch populations at two sites with 17 years of census data. He states that while the monarch population appears stable for now, the species faces many threats to its long-term persistence.
