Matthew Douglas gives talks to Michigan Botanical Society

On February 10th, Dr. Matthew Douglas gave several talks to the Michigan Botanical Society at Grand Valley State University.  The first talk, Defense of Bracken Fern by Arthropods, discussed the protection that the fiddle heads of bracken fern receive in the spring growing season from arthropods, including predaceous ants and spiders. The second talk, Inter-generational Migration of Monarch Butterflies in North and South America, discussed the similar strategies of migration into these two (very closely but isolated) species of monarchs in the northern and southern hemisphere.
