  • ABSTRACT In total, 11,333 fall migrant monarch butterflies were captured, measured, tagged, and released in southern Pennsylvania over an 18-yr period from 1992 to 2009, excluding 1996 and 2004. Fifty-six (0.494%) were recovered at the Mexican overwintering sites. Hind wing tags had a much higher recovery rate (1.13%) than forewing tags (0.138%). When compared with published recovery rates east of the Appalachians using the same tag type, Pennsylvania was higher than all coastal sites but… CONTINUE READING
