Summary

The decline in the monarch butterfly has led to it being considered for listing under the Endangered Species Act. Declines in managed and native bees have also been documented, leading to increased concerns about bee populations and communities, as well as the availability of pollination services for crops and native plants. Similar factors have been identified in the decline of monarchs, native bees, and other pollinators, including habitat fragmentation, loss, and degradation (including milkweed loss for monarchs), and disease/predation, as well as climate change, weather extremes, invasive species, and pesticides. Texas is part of the Southwest breeding region for monarchs, which supports approximately 11% of the population that [...]

Purpose

Conduct surveys of milkweed, monarch butterfly populations, and associated habitat characteristics congruent with the National Monarch Monitoring Protocol (MMP) and as developed by mutual agreement between the principal investigator and the designated Technical Review Team (TRT) for the project. Specifically: Surveys will be conducted on land tracts in at least six ecoregions and counties along the 1-35 corridor. Data collected as part of the surveys will be compatible with and have the ability to contribute to other monarch butterfly research and data collection efforts across the country. Coordination with other agencies conducting research on the monarch butterfly will be established to reduce duplication of effort. Selection of fellows will include an opportunity for diversity recruitment and a youth employment/development component consistent with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service direction.
