Research Professor of Biology Lincoln P. Brower
Sweet Briar College

For more than half a century Professor Lincoln Brower has been investigating the biology of the monarch butterfly.  In this lecture, copiously illustrated with photographs ranging from electron micrographs to satellite images, Professor Brower will present a first-person account of his field expeditions and lab explorations, and describe the conservation issues that threaten the butterflies' unique migration and wintering biology.  This lecture will appeal to curious naturalists, scientists, and ardent conservationists of all ages and backgrounds.
