Western Butterflies: History, Threats, and Possible Futures

November 11
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM PDT / 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM MDT / 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CDT / 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT


Join Matt Forister, Professor of Biology and Insect Ecology at the University of Nevada, as he explores data from different long term sources on western butterfly species and habitats and an overview of threats in the west.


Matt Forister is a professor of biology and insect ecology in the Biology Department at the University of Nevada, Reno. He has studied butterflies and other insects in the western US for the last 20 years, and has published more than 100 journal articles and book chapters on issues that include insects adapting to exotic plants and butterflies responding to a changing climate. One of the main concerns for Forister and his graduate students is the collection of data at sites in the Sierra Nevada that have been studied for almost 50 years, a project originally started by Art Shapiro of UC Davis.
