  • Prior tagging studies at Atlantic coastal sites in New Jersey and Virginia suggested that fall migrant monarch butterflies (Danaus plexippus L., Nymphalidae: Danainae) of the eastern North American population have lower recovery rates at overwintering sites in Mexico compared to the overall recovery rates reported by Monarch Watch for monarchs tagged throughout the late summer breeding range. Here we present the results of the first quantitative study that compares the probability of recapture… CONTINUE READING
