Brown Bag Speakers Forum: Butterfly Decline and Conservation with Peter Oboyski

Brown Bag Speakers Forum: Butterfly Decline and Conservation with Peter Oboyski

Since the extinction of the Xerces blue butterfly from San Francisco in the 1940's, conservation efforts have tried to rescue many other species from the brink. What are the causes and what can we do about it? Find out what we know (and what we do not know).

Peter Oboyski received his PhD in Insect Biology from UC Berkeley and is now Assistant Director and Collections Manager of the Essig Museum ofEntomology at Cal. His research focuses on theevolution, ecology, and conservation of island insects, especially moths of the Pacific Islands and Indonesia.
