"BUTTERFLY WEEK 2019"

Gran Sasso and Laga Mountains

The Butterfly Week 2019 will go back to the mountains, in Abruzzo!

 

We will start on the 8th of July in L’Aquila, with the 2° Workshop Nazionale del Monitoring Scheme Italia where we will set up the first transects of BMS (Butterfly Monitoring Scheme) for the region Abruzzo.

 

The Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga will be the next stops. There we will evaluate the status of some butterfly species populations potentially at risk for climate change, focusing on Erebia spp. (particularly on E. pandrose), Lasiommata petropolitana and Parnassius apollo.

We will also finish the last samplings for the Barcoding Italian Butterflies project.
 

We will end the week in L’Aquila, for the first meeting of the Associazione Lepidotterologica Italiana (Italian Lepidopterological Association).

The Butterffly Week is a research initiative that involves researchers and citizens. Every year a different destination is choosen, and for a week several researchers, coming from all around the world, will study the butterfly fauna in order to rediscover its biodiversity and enable a better conservation.

This year during the Butterfly Week we will focus on the species Parnassius mnemosyne, a protected species threatened by climate change.
During the week we will try to evaluate the consistency of its populations and the dispersal events across various clearings of the adults through Mark-Release-Recapture methods (MRR). The characteristics of the host plants will also be evaluated in order to take future actions for the restoration and maintenance of its habitat.
