Monarch Lab on YouTube!

Posted on Thursday, September 17, 2015 at 12:27 pm in Monarch Biology, Monarch Lab Research Updates

Monarch Lab Ph.D. candidate, Carl Stenoien, has been building an archive of stunning timelapse videos. 

Carl has been able to expertly record a variety of butterfly species pupating and eclosing. Some of Carl's videos even offer a view into the more sinister side of nature. Carl studies parasitoid wasps (small wasps that lay their eggs inside a pupal host), and he has been able to get some novel footage of Pteromalus cassotis parasitoids emerging from a parasitized chrysalis, as well as P. cassotis parasitizing a pupating monarch. These are some "must-see" videos for anyone interested in the amazing world of insects.
